Subject description: GTK doesn't have a lot of widgets :(
 

The 7zip GUI uses the windows api so it can't be compiled on linux. I'm looking to create a GTK frontend for 7zip, here's a picture of the 7zip file manager (which is the most important feature)



I don't know how to reproduce the part of the window containing the list of files. Any help?

PeaZip is a gui app that can handle 7zip format:

Then I guess my attempts are pointless. I'll give PeaZip a try.

Or maybe not Smile PeaZip is huge, supports multiple formats. A 7zip-only frontend in gtk, lightweight one would be good too. Smile

You're right, it's 20MB+. Shocked

As for my original question, a little experimentation shows I should use the treeview widget.

you may need to update the wrapper for xarchive since it is based on the 7za that was released circa 2005. I just updated the xarchive wrappers to use lzma and xz (which is better than 7z in many ways)

xarchive is nice but it's not what I'm looking for. 7zip can extract just about every file known to man, including binary executables, windows installer packages, all linux packages, every compression format, and many kinds of documents (ms office, OO, autodesk CAD formats, etc). Plus it has a file manager to make extracting a snap.

Xarchive is just a gui (plus puzip being a wrapper) and actually uses bash scripts plus executables to handle different formats.
I have it handling debs, rpm's pets, cabs and so on.
You could take 7zip and have it handling whatever via xarchive...using it as a premade gui

still seemed ok with a recent 7zip and the original wrapper.

But xarchive is still a simple GUI, not a full blown file manager. It's hard to browse the contents of a archive in xarchive.

There is fileroller and xarchiver too, but I think you want a GTK Midnight Commander (command line file manager has this too) - there a couple other *Commander programs that are similar but not sure if any were GTK. I do like the idea of being able to browse compressed archives as if they were a folder.
