Hello SirDuncan,

downloaded your p7zip-4.58.pet and installed it in Puppy 4.3.1 in less than 20 secs; then Xarchive very quickly extracted a 244 MB ISO image with it (Syllable 0.6.6).

Thank you very much! Very Happy

Thanks to Sir Duncan for the pet, and to Catepa for the command. This allowed me to get unrar running quickly and with no difficulty.

For the latest version there's a nice binary installer. The latest versions name is p7zip_9.04_x86_linux_bin.tar.bz2

Once again I am reminded of why Linux users are the best, and puppy developers are the best of the best. I have not found a single problem yet that has not already been solved or resolved and the solutions are always easy to understand and best of all the work!!

So many times in the past with Red Hat, Fedora, Suse, the instructions were esoteric and difficult to follow, and of course changed for every distro and version. That's one of the primary reasons I dropped Linux for several years. So one good thing has come out of the current economy -- I FOUND PUPPY LOVE!!

Thanks again guys for all your hard work and effort. Manybe someday I can contribute as well.

I must be doing something wrong here. Installed the unrar pet on my Puppy 4.2.1. setup but it doesn't seem to work. The entire desktop freezes and Puppy has to be rebooted via Ctrl + ALT + Backspace. Also tried to install the PET for replacing xarchive with xarchiver but nothing seems to happen? Package installer never comes back telling me the install was successful and if I check my installed packages there doesn't seem to be anything new re xarchiver.
Is there a way to unrar files, some password protected, without having to resort to esoteric command line stuff?

Edit: received via PM and

Code:
unrar e -ad [file...]


did the trick

1) Just download Peazip, , extract it to a somewhere, e.g. /mnt/home, then, in the extracted peazip_portable-3.3.LINUX.GTK2 directory, symlink peazip to /usr/bin directory.

2) right-click any .rar archive & set the "Set Run Action" to peazip "$1"

Is Peazip OK with any or all of the following, please?

dpup 009
Fatdog64
Lucid 5.1.1
Fluppy 005/006

I don't want to create a mess by downloading and installing an incompatible app.

Thanks!

You are very safe with Peazip. If you are worried, use the potable version.

Can Pzip open Windows .exe's as archives? 7-zip can, and I use it for icon extraction, but I don't want to install pzip unless I'm sure it will do what I need it to.
