Bug Description

Binary package hint: gvfs

I tried to mount a bluray iso file via gvfsd-archive. It doesn't do it well. No files are listed in the mounted archive on my desktop. When I use this command:
mount -o loop -t udf myiso.iso /media/mountediso
it works ok and I can see all files in the directory.

Which version of Ubuntu are you running? how are you mounting the files?

I'm running Karmic. I tried to mount the Iso's via the Archive Mounter in the contextmenu of the iso-files (in Nautilus). The iso is then mounted as a drive on the desktop, but the bluray-iso's are empty. The strange thing is that if I mount them via the commandline using the udf flag, all is ok.

this bug is annoying and has been well known for ages!

if anyone fances fixing it could I suggest a feature of also being able to mount img files and img files with mbr/partitions (using an offset)

a pleasant work around is to use the gnome-disk-image-mounter, which does the job perfectly, and also leaves a cleaner entry in the output of `mount`

btw, gvfsd-archive and gvfs-mount still have trouble mounting iso-files. apparently sometimes the work, but most times they don't (with the files I have anyhow). but as stated above gnome-disk-image-mounter works brilliantly.
