The PowerISO version dedicated to Linux is simply a command line utility that uses no GUI contrary to that of Windows. With PowerISO for Linux you can only convert, extract, and list image files such as ISO, DAA, BIN and many other file formats.

In this page we will see how to install this command line utility under Ubuntu or any other derivatives. Open the terminal and run these commands:

wget -O poweriso-1.3.tar.gz http://goo.gl/p8Tzc
sudo tar -xzvf poweriso-1.3.tar.gz -C /usr/local/bin
sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/poweriso

The PowerISO command line utility is now installed. To get help about using this utility, run this command from the terminal:

poweriso -?

If we want for example to extract an ISO file found in your home directory using PowerISO, you can simply use this command:

poweriso extract ~/file.iso / -od ~/folder

To convert for example a .daa file to .iso, you can use this command:

poweriso convert file.daa -o file.iso -ot iso

And so on.
