I use daemon tools in Windows to see files in an ISO DVD image. Are there any tools like that on Ubuntu? How do I see the files in an ISO DVD image without burning it to disc?

You can mount them in Gnome just by right clicking on them and clicking Archive Mounter.

Sometimes that doesn't work too well. If not:

sudo mount -oloop -tudf,iso9660 [isofile] [directory]

You can create a directory to mount the ISO image.

For example, you could create the directory /mnt/myISOMount, mount the ISO to that directory, and explore the ISO files in that directory.

It would look something like this:

Create the directory:

sudo mkdir /mnt/myISOMount

Mount the ISO:

sudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 your_iso_file.iso /mnt/myISOMount

Change to the directory and explore the files in the ISO:

cd /mnt/myISOMount

AcetoneISO can also be used to mount ISO files.
