Remove 'Archive Mounter' from options to mount ISO files

Bug #1808684 reported by Amr Ibrahim on 2018-12-16
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
nautilus (Ubuntu)

Bug Description


1. Open nautilus
2. Right-click on an ISO image file (like a Windows 10 setup ISO file)
3. Choose 'Open With Other Application'
4. Choose 'Archive Mounter'
5. The mounted fie is empty

I believe that option is legacy, useless and a duplicate of 'Disk Image Mounter', which is the right option to choose to mount ISO files. When I mount with 'Archive Mounter', I get an empty mounted file with nothing in it.

Thank you for your bug report. The item works fine here (tested on an Ubuntu iso, the mount gets added in the nautilus sidebar and can be browsed), gnome-disk-utility does provide a similar option though so there is no need to keep that custom one

Yes, it works for Ubuntu ISO but not for everything. It didn't work for a Windows 10 ISO.

The option from gnome-disk-utility works fine, however, the mounted ISO does not appear on nautilus sidebar, it's hidden in Other Locations. But that's a different issue.

Right, the sidebar vs other location might be worth reporting upstream

      nowadays gnome-disk-utility provide a similar feature

nautilus (3.30.5-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * New upstream release
  * Don't have nautilus-data recommend nautilus
  * Restore -Wl,-O1 to our LDFLAGS
  * debian/copyright: nautilus is GPL-3+ instead of GPL-2+
