Question LinZIp (Linux WinZip equivalent)


Version: 1.1
Filename: linzipv1_1.tgz
Download: (

Description: (
LinZip is a full-featured file-compression utility designed to make it easier for you to archive files and folders in the Linux platform. With a friendly Graphic User Interface, LinZip lets you add and extract files easier than ever.

The program supports tar, tar.gz(tgz), lzh, arj and gz. This program does not yet support the ZIP format.

I get an error when running the LinZip command

[root@candyman ~]# cd /usr/local/bin
[root@candyman bin]# ls
defendguin  LinZip
[root@candyman bin]#./LinZip
./LinZip: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: XList InputDevices
I searched here and with Google for and came up with Gimp Toolkit. I found the Fedora RPM location for the RPMS needed. I also searched my Fedora CD's and found them there too. I have both the Toolkit and the Devel pkg RPM installed on my system already. I've downloaded the updated versions.

Filename: gtk2-2.4.14-2.fc3.i386.rpm

Filename: gtk2-devel-2.4.14-2.fc3.i386.rpm

Before I update both of these I would like to know what undefined symbol: XList InputDevices means. Anyone know and can point me to a fix?

The files I was trying to archive all had filenames identical but in different directories. File-roller and ark won't do multiple files with the same names and won't recurse directories for the tarball. I tried them both. What's below I want to gzip into one file that will expand the same way directory tree wise. And most of all I don't like doing console commands when the files are all over the place like the ones below. I prefer a GUI-based X-Windows System application. Thanks for the pointer though.
