File roller doesn't support encription


I am using slackware 9 and I would like to archive some file using File Roller and protect them with a password, but I get a message "encription not supported".

Can anybody help me solve this problem?

Thnks

I'll have to check into File Roller later, but I can tell you right now, that archive passwords are easily cracked anyhow. If you really want to secure your data, use gpg to encrypt the file itself, and then archive/compress it.

I discovered that the problem is not with file roller, but with Zip. It is my Zip package that doesn't include encryption.

I spent one day looking for a patch to download that will enable the options -e and -P for the zip command, but I cannot find it. I just found a reference to a patch "zcrypt28.zip", but I can't find it anywhere. I actually found a site with a download link to it, but I got a message that it had been removed. Can anubody help?
