Is it possible for a user without root access to mount an arbitrary iso? If so how?
You may also need to add your user to the
fuse group if you get permission errors when trying to use
The easiest way is probably with
sudo. Let's assume that you want everybody in the
cdrom group able to mount and unmount ISO images. Make the following addition to the sudoers file using
cdrom ALL = /bin/mount -o loop -t iso9660 *.iso /media/* cdrom ALL = /bin/umount /media/*
This should allow anybody in the
cdrom group to mount a file ending in
.iso as type
iso9660 on a directory inside the /media folder and also unmount anything in the /media folder.
