Ubuntu: How to find the path of an mounted iso file?



Question:

I want the full path of the original iso file which was mounted into a (lets say /media/iso) directory. I don't know how to get that iso file path.

I tried lsblk,sudo blkid commands but nothing seems to work.

How do i find the path of an iso file which is currently mounted? Is there any command for that?


Solution:1

Run the below command on terminal to view the original iso file path which is mounted inside /media/iso directory,

mount | awk '/\/media\/iso/ { print $1}'  

To see the whole line(iso path location and the mount point),

mount | awk '/\/media\/iso/ { print $0}'  

OR

mount | grep /media/iso  

In the above /media/iso is the mountpoint where the iso file is actually mounted./\/media\/iso/ in the awk command is a regular expression to grab a line which contains the name /media/iso.You have to escape the forward slahes(like /\/media\/iso/) while you give it on an awk search regex.

$ mount | grep /media/iso  /usr/share/virtualbox/VBoxGuestAdditions.iso on /media/iso type iso9660 (ro)  $ mount | awk '/\/media\/iso/ { print $1}'  /usr/share/virtualbox/VBoxGuestAdditions.iso  $ mount | awk '/\/media\/iso/ { print $0}'  /usr/share/virtualbox/VBoxGuestAdditions.iso on /media/iso type iso9660 (ro)  

You can also search by the file type as,

$ mount | awk '/iso9660/ { print $1}'  /usr/share/virtualbox/VBoxGuestAdditions.iso  $ mount | awk '/iso9660/'  /usr/share/virtualbox/VBoxGuestAdditions.iso on /media/iso type iso9660 (ro)
