Using latest Xenial Pup, fully updated. I have an ISO file I want to mount so that I can install an app without having to burn it to a DVD. I know there's a way to do it, but I can't figure it out. Can someone point me to where I can find this info? Thanks.

Hi, open a console in the same folder where your .iso is (Puppy-Linux.iso in my example) and try:
Code:
mount -o loop Puppy-Linux.iso /tmp/some-folder

/tmp/some-folder must exist previosly, it's just an example, you can use any other empty folder.

IHTH

Hallo, Jeff.

Now; when you say you want to mount an ISO so you can install an app.....can you clarify? AFAIK you can only install apps into an actual running OS.....

Do you want to copy an app from an ISO into Xenialpup?

Need a few more details, please.

Maybe manually: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=392904#392904

or using an application called Woofy: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=57037

or perhaps now that we've modularized Puppy:

1. Create a folder named puppy_xenial_xxx where xxx is your version's number.
2. Left-Click to Mount the ISO.
3. Left-Click the puppy_xenial_xxx.sfs and select "view"
4. Copy the contents from the view window into puppy_xenial_xxx
5. Copy the files of the application you want to install into their proper places in puppy_xenial_xxx.
6. dir2sfs puppy_xenial_xxx.
7. Replace the new puppy_xenial_xxx.sfs for the old.

or (untested) but probably easiest:

Install PaDS 1.1.3 from http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=998922#998922. [Optionally -- you won't need it for this operation] install xdotool via Puppy Package Manager.

Steps 1 and 2 from above.
3. Copy the puppy_xenial_xxx.sfs into the puppy_xenial_xxx folder
4. Right-click the puppy_xenial_xxx.sfs and rename it apuppy_xenial_xxx.sfs*
5. Copy the pet/SFS/ or other package -- not just files** into the puppy_xenial_xxx folder.
6. Right-click the puppy_xenial_xxx folder and select Combine to SFS.

The new SFS will be built in /root unless you've previously used the PaDS' GUI from the Start Menu > Utilities to select a different location.

7. Replace the new puppy_xenial_xxx.sfs for the old.

Remember to unmount any SFS and ISO you've mounted.

* You can name it anything you like other than its current name. See this post http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=999164#999164
** See above PaDS' thread for acceptable packages.

My goodness! I installed pcmanfm, it opened the iso file so I could find the setup program for the program. It all worked wonderfully!!!! So many thanks again to all.

You can do the same thing in Rox file manager.
Left click on the iso.
It mounts the iso and opens a new Rox window showing what is in the iso.
Close the Rox window.
Left click on the iso and it unmounts.
