    You can mount it via the command line.
    First create a folder in which the image will be mounted
    Code:
    sudo mkdir /media/isofolder
    and then mount the image
    Code:
    sudo mount -o loop /path/to/image/imagename.iso /media/isofolder
    After you're done, you can unmount the image
    Code:
    sudo umount /media/isofolder
    and delete the mount folder if you like
    Code:
    sudo rm -r /media/isofolder

    Or you can use /media/iso or /mnt as temp mount points (for those who are lazy enough not to want to make a directory and then remove it).

    If you want a graphical interface, there are several.

    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.

    you can try out cdemu. Its a panel applet and has worked well for me thus far. If your ok with using its ppa:

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cdemu/ppa
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install gcdemu cdemu-daemon
    You will need to add it to one of your panels by right clicking it ---> Add to Panel..., look through the applets and double click gcdemu.

    it didn't work for me until rebooting, guess the daemon needs to start up. not sure how to load it manually so...
    Code:
    sudo reboot

    I did that and it didnt work...and ive figured out how to compile from source, but that wont work either...i use the configure command and it eventually get an error saying that i need pygtk past version 2.0. so i downloaded the thing for that and tried to compile THAT from source and it wont get past the configure either cause it says it cant find the Python headers..whats going on?

    Thanks
