I want to mount a (.iso) CD-image under Linux (I am using Ubuntu). I know that I can do it with mount using the loopback device, but for that, I need to be root. Is there any way to do it with user privileges?

The tool you probably want is fuseiso. You do need to add the account to the fuse group, but after that mounting as any user with fuse privileges is pretty easy.

I've never used it myself, as I just use the command line and enter the password, but this program appears to be the sort of thing you are after

Nautilus ( the Gnome file-manager ) gives you an option mount an iso when right-clicking on the iso.
