Nautilus preferences [SOLVED]

When I mount my images using Furius and copy files contained in the image to another folder, many of the files end up copied with read-only restrictions. Then I have to change using Permissions. Not sure if there is a way to change that from happening so I don't have to mess with setting Permissions every single time I copy.
Question1: Can that be changed?
Question2: How do I get to Nautilus preferences settings?

Gnomes nautilus developers do not believe that the user should have too much control. You could click the hamburger icon in the upper left; it has some general settings there. But you won't find what you need.
That is just one of many (many!) features that were once a part of Nautilus that have been stripped away with a litany of excuses by the developers.

As to your main issue (And if anyone knows differently, I will be happy to be corrected):
Furius taps into Root Ownership to operate and on Ubuntu 18.04, the crossover back to User does not exist. In performance, it is probably "hit and miss".
Furius' latest release was in 2011. It is now discontinued and unmaintained.

I THINK, correct me if I am wrong, you asked about this particular software before because you were having dependency issues with it.
That was quite a while ago.
I feel your pain about wanting to use a program you know - and replacing it with a "modern" version is often not pleasant. But in the end, we have no choice...
Please review some alternatives and see if any may suit your needs:

---Note: The Mac and Linux packages only provide a command line (terminal) user interface, no graphical user interface. These packages wil not be useful to most users.

Thanks.

Yes, I had asked about Furius before. My issue with Furius was minor - the inability to have it listed as one of the applications when trying to open a file. No biggie. You had told me about it being discontinued but I like it enough that I will keep using it. Appreciate the alternative options.

The Nautilus preferences issues is also not a big deal but I thought I'd check if there was a way around it. At the least, now I know how to get to its preferences.

You may be able to achieve what you want with ther terminal command:
Code: Select all
sudo mount -v -o rw,loop,uid=$UID (image path goes here) /media/Virtual

I have not tested it at all.
iso0996 always mounts in read only and Furius, back in the day, was a program you could use to overcome that.
I don't know too much about it, this is what I have gathered searching and reading.

I added cdEmu in the Zorin 12 manual I think as a useful application for mounting games under Wine, using k3b to create the .iso as a 'toc-bin' or something like that, for when a game needs to have the disk present - cdEmu then mounts the created .iso that k3b made. ;) :D

Thanks to both.

Yes, it is predominantly for games. Interesting that cdEmu can be used for Wine mounting. I found this: https://launchpad.net/~cdemu/+archive/ubuntu/ppa - couldn't find cdEmu on Software manager or Synaptic.

I typically use PlayonLinux rather than straight Wine. I found https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/c ... ayonlinux/ for CD recognition but I haven't tried the commands yet.

Aravisian gave you the ppa for CDemu

See here also: https://cdemu.sourceforge.io/

Ah yes. I missed Aravisian's #3 and #4 links. Same as one I found. So, I'll go ahead and try from there if the POL option gives me problems.

The terminal mount command worked but CDEmu worked better. Thanks again to both.
