.zip Files


Hi, how can I extract stuff from zip files? When I click on one it opens a program called Archiver but i get a message saying "Sorry, the utility zip is not in your PATH. Please install it or contact your system administrator."

guess not...

I did "urpmi zip" and it asked me for the installation CD, so i put it in and i guess it installed, because when I type "rpm -q zip" it says "zip-2.3-6mdk." But i still get the message....
