    Extract .iso files

    I wondered if there's a way to extract ISO files from the terminal? Without mounting it first?
    You can simply rightclick and 'extract here' in nautilus, but I'm looking for a way to do it in CLI. unrar doesn't support iso files unfortunately.

    Is there a way?

    I believe the app ISO master will do what you want.

    Thanks for your reply, but it seems like it's only graphical:

    Code:
    ISO Master(1)                                                                  ISO Master(1)
    
    NAME
           isomaster - an ISO image editor
    
    SYNTAX
           isomaster [image.iso]
    
    DESCRIPTION
           ISO  Master  is  an open-source, easy to use, graphical CD image editor for Linux and
           BSD. Basically you can use this program to extract files from an ISO, add files to an
           ISO, and create bootable ISOs - all in a graphical user interface.
    
           ISO Master can open ISO, NRG, and some MDF files but can only save as ISO.
    
    OPTIONS
           The only command-line parameter supported is the name of the image to open.

    From the Terminal.

    Code:
    sudo mkdir /media/iso
    sudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 /path/to/file.iso /media/iso
    From a GUI program:

    Code:
    sudo aptitude install gmountiso

    I am familiair with these solutions, but I'm looking for a way to extract an iso directly, without mounting it first.

    Re: Extract .iso files

    My bad. You stated that in the OP and I glossed over it. Have you tried PowerISO yet?

    I can't get any further then this:

    Code:
    daniel@server:~$ tar xvf poweriso-1.3.tar.gz 
    poweriso
    daniel@server:~$ file poweriso
    poweriso: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), statically linked, for GNU/Linux 2.2.5, stripped
    daniel@server:~$ poweriso --help
    -bash: poweriso: command not found
    daniel@server:~$ poweriso
    -bash: poweriso: command not found
    Am I doing something wrong? Perhaps it's a GUI-style program?

    Re: Extract .iso files

    I assume wherever you extracted it to is not in your PATH environment variable, so cd to where the executable is, and then do:

    Code:
    ./poweriso

    Re: Extract .iso files

    Also, the default archive manager in Ubuntu can extract an ISO without mounting it:

    Code:
    file-roller -h filename.iso
    man file-roller for other options.

    7z can do it to. Install the p7zip-full package and then you can use:

    Code:
    7z x filename.iso
