Linux Daily

Daily usage of linux, raw style

If you ever find yourself needing to convert a .bin/.cue image (non-linux format) to a .iso, there’s an easier way to do it than using bin2iso. To use bin2iso, you need to compile code. Fuck that. In ubuntu’s repositories there’s already an application available, shame it isn’t graphic. The package is bchunk.

To use it, hit on the terminal

bchunk file.bin file.cue basename

The generated .iso will be in the form basename.iso01.iso

For future reference, to mount the iso is as simple as

sudo mkdir /media/folder
sudo mount -o loop basename.iso01.iso /media/folder

And voila, the iso is mount on /media/folder.
That’s all folks.
