Unable to mount the live img

Hello all, 

I am trying to mount the debian-live-506-i386-kde-desktop.img so that I can change some files on it.
When I type the following command:

mount -o loop ./debian-live-506-i386-kde-desktop.img mount

I get:

mount: you must specify the filesystem type

I followed the following guide:
It says that I have to use the following command:

sudo mount -o loop,offset=512 debian-live-506-i386-kde-desktop.img mount

But this offset does not make any difference, mount:you must specify the filesystem type.

When I use the following command:

mount -t usbfs -o loop ./debian-live-506-i386-kde-desktop.img mount

It mounts, but there are no files in the mount directory and du -hs ./mount shows the size of 0.

Can anyone please give me some advice?
