"Description: CD image format conversion from bin/cue to iso/cdr
The bchunk package contains a UNIX/C rewrite of the BinChunker program.

into a set of .iso and .cdr/.wav tracks. The .bin/.cue format is used by
some non-UNIX CD-writing software, but is not supported on most other
I've never had the need for this, but I'm told "bchunk" is the utility to
use for bin/cue files. This looks a lot easier than fiddling with kernel
modules, seems to me... Linux can handle ISO without complex work-arounds,
and mount ISO images using "loop"
sudo mount -o loop /path/to/ISO /your/mountpoint
Should do the trick for an ISO
It appears that cdemu is a kernel module, so you would need to install
linux-headers-$(uname -r) and build-essential, then go through a series
of steps to make and modprobe the module. A quick google on "Ubuntu linux
cdemu bin cue" reveals , amongst other links,
