Easy mount disc image files (iso, img, bin, mdf, nrg) in Xubuntu

Mounty allows to mount disc image files (iso, img, bin, mdf, nrg) from the system tray.

Mounty running in Xubuntu

Some features:

  • Remember mounted images (if selected the disc images will still be mounted after system restart).
  • Load at startup (works with Xfce session, however the '%U' must be deleted from the command; see this if you need help).
  • Use AppIndicator (if unselected, its behavior changes as follows: left-click opens select image dialog and right-click show the options dialog (open, eject, quit...).


Open a terminal window and run:

sudo add-apt-repository "deb / #SKSS" && wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install mounty -y

  1. That was very helpful, thank you!

  2. My husband directed me here and I got all the help I needed, so glad this worked. Thank you so much.

  3. Thank you im searching same on Xfce from Gnome

  4. Installed this on 12.04.3 --thanks; but when I execute from terminal I get:

    "INFO: You could try to speed-up the execution if you had psyco installed."

    1. Don't worry, it's not an error. Psyco ( is a Python module for improving execution speed. It's no longer maintained.
