I used to open *.gz files with TkZip in 1.0.3. TkZip was gone in 1.0.5 Sad and guiTAR won't open them.
What can I do?

Install TkZip with PupGet Smile

Or use muzip: http://www.murga.org/%7Epuppy/viewtopic.php?t=2825

So, is guiTAR not working?
I always use the commandline.

If there is a problem with guiTAR, I'll report it to the author.

I think I used it just yesterday. It was the first time I've tried to look at a .gz file, at least in Puppy, so I wasn't paying attention and I'm not exactly certain what happened, but I think it was guiTAR that automagically opened when I downloaded the .gz file.

I was trying to extract a file called "scanModem.gz" as suggested here. GuiTAR doesn't show anything but only has a line "Invalid Filename" at the status bar. Does that mean file type not supported?

I then installed G2 bugfix to see if that works but it didn't. I think he associated .gz file with TkZip (which is now linked to guiTAR) ...

>> Or use muzip
Thanks Mark, it works Smile
I think I'd better be more commandline savvy and begin to learn how to use gunzip Wink

gzip --help
gunzip --help

http://noforum.de/man2html.php?page=gzip
http://noforum.de/man2html.php?page=gunzip

Short:
To extract a file: gunzip file.gz

With .TAR.gz -files (= .tgz) it is different.
The are packed with tar to 1 file, and then gzipped (compressed).

Extract:
tar -xzvf file.tar.gz

Pack/compress:
tar -czvf newname.tar.gz File1 File2 Folder1 ...

Greets, Mark
