ISO filesystem not mounted properly on Live USB disks

Bug Description

Binary package hint: casper

apt-cdrom doesnt' seem to add packages shipped on live media when starting up from a live USB disk. It works fine when booting from a dvd disc though.

This worked fine in maverick, it's used to install packages in the live environment for live LTSP on Edubuntu. It is also required for the installation of optional extras during installation.

On some systems that install additional packages from the disk, users might be presented with a "Change CD" message.

casper 1.259 should mostly have fixed this by making /media/cdrom a symlink to /cdrom, but I've also committed a change for 1.260 to hit this with a different hammer as well just to make sure.

This bug was fixed in the package casper - 1.260

  * Force apt-cdrom's mount point to /cdrom (LP: #723357). I've left the
    /media/cdrom symlink introduced in 1.259 in place anyway, as it's
    harmless on the live CD and may save some effort elsewhere.

  * scripts/casper-bottom/30accessibility && ubiquity-hooks/30accessibility:
    - Set the default session to classic GNOME for moderate visual
      impairement, blindness, and braille accessibility profiles (LP: #734659)
    - Fix a few dangling references to (LP: #744214)
    - Don't set /desktop/gnome/accessibility/keyboard/enable for vision
      related profiles (LP: #711131)
