Ubuntu – How to mount an ISO


I was hoping to know if Ubuntu comes with a standard way of mounting ISOs. I looked around online and found a bunch of scripts that can do it.

This to me seems like core functionality, is it offered by default in Ubuntu. If not where is the best and simplest mounter for ISOs.

If you prefer to keep it old school, in a terminal:

sudo mount /path/to/iso /path/to/mountpoint -o loop

This, of course, will not allow you to edit the ISO as the other mentioned tools will, but if you just need to quickly get into one and pull a few files from it, works like a charm :-)
