You are right, it isn't working.
Except for drawing the GUI, the purpose of
the application is very simple :
1) Mount the .iso
2) Show the files in a file browser.
I prefer this method :
a) cd <to location with iso ( and a new folder ) >
c) mount -o loop <file.iso> <new-folder> && firefox <path-to-new-folder>
... or you can just do the first part
mount -o loop <file.iso> <new-folder>
... and then watch the files in your preferred file manager.
My test example :
# mount -o loop livecd_SL53_gnome_2009-03-23.iso 9000/ \
&& firefox351 9000/
