I have a cd image that is not a .iso but a .cue. I cannot mount it. I use ubuntu 10.10 64 bits, and I've tried a lot of programs. furiosmout just says it is not a image file, and it just didn't work.

To check that it has loaded, run
To see the device allocation, enter

Strangely enough, I still had to click to mount them in my file manager (Thunar).
You can unload the image pair by specifying the same device (
If any errors occur, or you can't load or unload your images, just logout and login again.
