Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Mount-GTK is a front end for pmount, offering the user a GUI for mounting applications. Modern file managers like Nautilus recognize and mount the drives by default, but it is good to mount filesystems on demand while they are not removable media. The latest stable version available is Mount-GTK 1.4.2, which brings some improvements to the previous version. For a full list of changes and enhancements, see the changelog.
In this article I will show you how to install Mount-GTK 1.4.2 on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail and Linux Mint 15 Olivia.
Because it is available via the GetDeb repository, installing Mount-GTK 1.4.2 on Ubuntu and Linux Mint is easy, all you have to do is:
