7zip in linux ?


hi
is there a way to get ark or file-roller (I think that's what the gnome app is called) to open 7zip archives?
I currently use a script that allows me to double click a file in kde and automatically uncompress it (using p7z), but I thought there might be another (more sophisticated) way or plugin to do that...
Also, I sometimes use the 7zip gui version for windows which sort of works.

One option is you can set the default file in Windows (or whatever) to use zip or bz2 or tar instead of the native 7z

I doubt it; command-line is much more powerful, convenient, efficient, etc. so I don't know why you want something else. You could write a GUI if you want to.

command line is not always more efficient.
I'm using linux for productivity and theres a difference between opening a shell, typing line (and thinking about the syntax) or simply double clicking a file.

Actually the bash prompt is more efficient than GUI. Midnight Commander can look into 7zip files which runs from the command prompt. However, not all Linux distributions includes this feature.

Well, yes.
But for my purpose the gui will be simpler and faster.

Ark gives me the choice to open a 7zip file. I cannot test this since I own no such files but it should be worth a try ...

Could you associate a script with .7z files in, say, Nautilus or Konqeror or whatever? A script which would take $filename.7z and, erm, un7zip it. Then, when you 2x-clicked on a file, it would extract the original file - if one was clever, in a folder called $filename.

that's what I did. I think this is sufficient for now.

yes, I saw that. But it then says 7z is not supported.
