Create an ISO image from a directory

Problem
You have a directory that you want to convert to ISO image format.

Solution
Here I found several ways how to do that. I liked acetoniso and genisoimage.

acetoniso: install it with “sudo apt-get install acetoniso“. It has a graphical interface. Under Image Conversion, there is a menu point called Generate ISO from folder. It will pop up two file dialogs, don’t be surprised. First choose the folder to be converted. Then specify the name of the ISO output.

genisoimage: install it with “sudo apt-get install genisoimage“. It’s a console application. Use it the following way:

genisoimage -o my_image.iso my_directory
