The Dolphin file manager in Kubuntu (I tested this in Kubuntu 21.04) does not ship with the Mount ISO option in the right-click menu, but with the help of the dolphin-plugins package, we can add this and many other features.

To get this working, we need to install this package.

Enter the command in Konsole to install the package.

sudo apt install dolphin-plugins

Here is some information about the package (run apt info dolphin-plugins to see this in a Konsole window).
