The error message basically tells you that neither file.zip or rt.zip is located in the Desktop directory. If the files really are in the Desktop directory make sure you are typing in the filename exactly. linux is case sensitive.

please do not save things to the "Desktop"
linux is not windows ( even windows sometimes has issues if things are saved there )

the normal DEFAULT location is
/home/YourUserName/Downloads


also if you have a DESKTOP install and not a terminal ONLY server install

you open a zip the EXACT!!! same way as on MS windows
right click the file
and from the menu select "open archive" ( or something like that )

or
also the exact SAME as windows

DOUBLE CLICK the zip
