  1. Mount the ISO:

    sudo mount -o loop /path/to/iso /mnt/xxx

  2. Copy the whole lot to a directory (say ~/yyy), using -p to preserve ownership and permissions for the files:

    sudo cp -rp /mnt/xxx ~/yyy

  3. Make your changes to the directory of files.

  4. Create a new ISO from the directory:

    mkisofs -o xyz.iso ~/xxx


You can, you just need to use mkisofs.

Copy your content in a folder ' l'ets say FOO ), change things, and just run mkisofs FOO

You can choose the name of the file with -o, like mkisofs -o foo.iso FOO

Depending on the iso, you may need to add a bootloader, etc, if this to create a bootable cd.


ISO Master is the way to go

You can use it to:

  1. Add files to an image

  2. Extract files fro an image

  3. Delete files from an image

You can install it by

Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command below.

sudo apt-get install isomaster
