CSO was originally only intended for smaller PS1/PSP disc images, so a different version can be compiled to support the larger DVD based images that PS2 games are usually distributed on.

sudo apt-get install git-core build-essential liblz4-dev libuv1-dev zlib1g-dev
git clone https://github.com/unknownbrackets/maxcso.git
cd maxcso
make
sudo make install

Now that maxcso has been compiled and installed, simply compress all iso images in a directory via:

for i in *.iso; do maxcso "$i"; done
