Description:

**DO NOT INSTALL with Dolphin Add-On Installer: just download and save the two files to the locations mentioned below.**

A service menu to mount and unmount iso files. It is based on KDE-Services (https://store.kde.org/p/998464/), namely on the commands in the file `ISO-Image-Tools_servicemenu.desktop`, which were added into a modified version of the service menu desktop file of Mount ISO image - here or elsewhere (store.kde.org/p/1201701/). The mount command is related to the script `iso_manager-mount-image.sh` (of KDE-Services) which is included here as such. This script file includes the following credits:

#################################################################
# For KDE-Services. 2012-2017. #
# By Geovani Barzaga Rodriguez #
# Improved by Victor Guardiola (vguardiola) Jan 5 2014 #
# -Fixed the problem of [dir|file]name with whitespaces. #
#################################################################

Therefore all credits go to the creators of these service menus and scripts.

The purpose of this is to have a simple way of mounting and unmounting images (without the many services that come with the installation of KDE-Services) that would look like the service menu Mount ISO image - here or elsewhere (store.kde.org/p/1201701/), which didn't seem to work as such.

It will mount the image in a newly created folder inside the same directory as the selected iso image. This folder will be deleted once the "unmount" option is applied to the selected iso image.

fuser, fusermount, fuseiso and kdialog must be installed.

INSTALLATION:

Copy the file "iso_mounter_unmounter.desktop" to `~/.local/share/kservices5/ServiceMenus/`

Copy the file "iso_manager-mount-image.sh" to `~/bin` (if you prefer other location you should edit accordingly the `Exec=` line under Desktop Action mount from the file "iso_mounter_unmounter.desktop").

Tested in Plasma 5.8 and 5.12.

I have tested by simplifying the mount command: it works with just `whatever/path/to/iso_manager-mount-image.sh %f`

The mount command in the `.desktop` file is exactly the one from KDE-Services except for the path to the `iso_manager-mount-image.sh` script, which I have place in `~bin`. And that script is exactly the same. You could backup your `usr/share/kservices5/ServiceMenus`, install KDE-Services, then remove all desktop files that it installs there excepting `ISO-Image-Tools_servicemenu.desktop`. You could look up the `.sh` script for the way it sets the mounting point. The mounted iso folder appears in the same directory as the iso.

I have tested in Mint 18.3 which is Plasma 5.8 and Ubuntu 16.04. Do you have fuser, fusermount, fuseiso and kdialog ? If yes, possibly other packages are needed that I'm not aware of. - What I could mention is that I have installed (`sudo make install` in the package folder) and then uninstalled (`sudo make uninstall`) KDE-Services.
