I want a graphical (GUI) method to mount an ISO, is there any way to do so?
Right-click on the file and choose "Open With Archive Mounter".
The ISO is mounted at
.gvfs folder under your Home directory.
You can either access it from the mount location as shown above or from the side-panel in your File Manager.

There is Furius ISO Mount
Select the ISO you want to mount by clicking on
In some cases (using certain file browsers or desktop environments) the mounted image is not opened automatically, so it is useful to know the mount point
To unmount, select that line to see the mount point clearly visible beside the "Unmount" button that has now become active.

In this cases, some settings can be made to ensure the image file is opened in the file browser: go to File/Options/General options/File manager and select file browser (e.g., Thunar or Nautilus, after having installed them: in Lubuntu/LXDE I do not recommend Nautilus, but Thunar; selecting LXDE in that list seems useless).
gnome-disk-utilily) is a drive and partition manager that, among other capabilities, creates a context menu entry in the file manager for the given purpose.
sudo apt-get install gnome-disk-utility
Testing in KDE, it creates a file manager panel entry called 'Loop device'. The default path to the mounted iso is
If, after unmounting the loop device(s) from file manager the panel entries still remain there even after restarting the file manager: to remove them, run
gnome-disks (the application can be searched and launched as 'Disks' too), select and close the 'Looping device', enable the "Auto-clear" option, then restart the file manager.
