Welcome to LQ.

Google .. gmount iso ..

Instructions here
http://phorolinux.com/mount-iso-imag...mount-iso.html

$ tar zxvf gmountiso_0.4-0ubuntu2.tar.gz
$ cd gmountiso-0.4/
# python Gmount-iso.py
.....
So actually no install or anything else,
it is a "ready to run application".
.....

Well, $ indicates a user prompt, # = a root prompt.

Try : python --version
to check the python command.

python Gmount-iso.py
will open the application, but cannot mount
anything, you need to be root for that.

So either :
1) su
... password
2) python Gmount-iso.py

or
sudo python Gmount-iso.py
will work.

Probably

1) apt-cache search python-gtk
2) sudo apt-get install python-gtk2

Also required : python-glade2
3) sudo apt-get install python-glade2

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 ) >
b) su
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/
.....
