    Archiver programs for Linux VM's 7-zip fm


    Hi folks

    this is a good one for anybody running Linux VM's

    7-Zip FM

    Nice GUI and works like the Windows version - handles almost any archive format - if you have the 7-zip program on Wondows thie GUI here is almnost identical. (As with most decent Linux software -- Free of course).

    (X-archiver is also OK but doesn't handle RAR etc - 7-zip fm is good).



    Cheers

    I've got it on my actual Linux machines, nice. Also have the Windows version. PeaZip is also pretty good.

    Is that the package name?
    I have it on all my Windows but as a Linux version I cannot find it.

    On other Linux distros use your package manager to install the same

    Hi @jimbo45
    Thanks.
    p7zip is also what I got.
    I've managed to integrate the GUI in Thunar file manager. Looks the same as the Windows version (compress options).

    Note that an official 7-Zip (alpha) version, cmd-line, was released by the maker, Igor Pavlov:
    7-Zip / Discussion /
    Open Discussion: 7-Zip for Linux


    Will be nice to see more like this being integrated in systems or with some Linux GUI in the future.
