Description Patrick Silva 2020-07-19 12:52:44 UTC
1. make sure "Enable automatic mounting of removable media" option
is unchecked in System Settings > Removable Storage > Removable Devices kcm
2. open Dolphin
3. right-click on an ISO image, choose "Mount ISO" 

The entry of the ISO image appears in Places panel of Dolphin, under "Devices", but the ISO image wasn't mounted. It only was "inserted".

a feature called "Mount ISO" should do what it says: mount the ISO image

Comment 1 Kwon-Young Choi 2020-07-20 08:19:56 UTC

Currently, this is the expected behaviour of the Mount ISO plugin.
In order to mount the ISO file to a directory, you have to manually click on the new entry created in Dolphin.

However, I completely agree that the default behaviour should be to automatically mount the ISO file to a directory but it is a little bit trickier to do.
I have already proposed a merge request to do this: https://invent.kde.org/sdk/dolphin-plugins/-/merge_requests/8
but it is a little bit hacky and I'm not sure the maintainers will agree to do it that way.

Automatically mount directory after attaching loop device

After attaching a loop device, the device needs to be mounted on directory to
be accessible. This can be done manually by clicking on the newly appeared
device in dolphin side bar. This patch automatize this by automatically
mounting the loop device to a directory using Solid after attaching the loop

The way this is done a little bit hacky since the plugin needs to wait for UDisks2 to send a signal to Solid to update its device database. The wait is done using a nested QEventLoop by waiting on Solid::DeviceNotifier::deviceAdded signal.
