Hey Moat & Neerajkolte, thanks for appreciation! Smile

Version 1.9:

- mksquashfs: better compression in xz mode (-Xbcj x86 -b 512K)
- mkisofs: Joliet disabled when creating Puppy ISO (if presence of "*.sfs", "initrd*" and "vmlinuz" files has been detected)
- fixed regression in creating right-click entries in FatDog
Creating the following link before installing PackIt in FD:
Code:
ln -s /etc/xdg/rox.sourceforge.net/SendTo /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/OpenWith

is still mandatory though!

First post updated!

Greetings!

Version 1.12

- bugfix: creating MD5/SHA1 was failing if output dir wasn't the same as input files' dir
- in Fatdog right-click entries are installed to /etc now
- some internal rearrangements

Note for Fatdog users:
If you have a previous version installed, uninstall it and issue the following command:
Code:
find /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/SendTo -type l -name "PackIt" -delete

This will delete old entries from right-click menu, otherwise you'd get duplicates after installing the new version.

Greetings!

Subject description: translated using momanager
 

German translation attached

Created using Puppy/Quirky/Fatdog standard tool momanager
which is storing translation files under standard TEXTDOMAINDIR=/usr/share/locale.

Thus to make it being used I had to symlink it.

Packed in Fatdog using packit.
Note, GenericName is used in Fatdogs menu, see image

Thank you L18L, included in version 1.13.

Version 1.13:
- slightly re-arranged structure of internal directories
- increased max. password length from 64 to 256
- added German translation (thanks to L18L)

Hi SFR.

Again, many thanks for this, no doubt the best packer around.

BFN.

Hi SFR, thanks for packit and uextract! Two things.

packit-1.13.pet includes an invisible folder /usr/local/apps/PackIt/locale/.fr-TjP2jO/

As I'm getting weary of right-clicking an archive in ROX-Filer to Send-To packit or uextract, I want to be able to just click a file and have the default archiver open the file (this is on Fatdog64, you guessed). So I set out to change the default MIME-type links in /etc/xdg/rox.sourgeforce.com but then I realized that my wish can't be done, because neither packit nor uextract is an archiver. Together they are the two halves that make up an archiver. Is it possible to come up with a glue GUI for both so that all archive MIME types can be associated with the glue GUI? For comparison, Jamesbond has pupzip replaced with his own compatible script, which defaults to opening xarchiver.

Thanks, fixed and re-uploaded. It was a leftover from extracting de translation via File-Roller.

How did you intall both apps? Did you use "Convert to New Package Format"?
Pinstall scripts should have taken care of associating ROX right-click actions with appropriate MIME-Types, so PackIt/UExtract should be available directly after right-clicking a file, no need to use "Send-To".

Hmm, I don't understand why would you want to associate only archive MIME-Types with a glue GUI that invokes also PackIt?
I think the point is to associate all NON-archive (or just all) MIME-Types with PackIt and this is how it's done in its pinstall.sh (all known types -> PackIt).
Anyway, I'm not quite sure are you still reffering to right-click action or just left clicking on a file?

Btw, you may also want to check Radky's pArchive.

Greetings!

I unpacked .pet files and copied all files to their respective locations. I read pinstall.sh and decided that all I needed was Send-To links --without any MIME-type involved-- to packit and to uextract for any file type, so I created the links manually. That's it. It's served me well, so far.

Think of how it works on Fatdog64 by default; clicking an archive file starts xarchive, from which you can uncompress OR add more files to the archive. Now I would like to replace the role of xarchive with the role of a combined packit-uextract, hence my question about a glue GUI.

I wasn't clear enough, you're right, I used "associate" meaning two different things. I meant right-click for the Send-To links, and left-click for the combined GUI. In other words, make the combined GUI the default MIME-type handler and ROX action for archive files.

Thanks for clarification.

I see what you mean. But I'm afraid it won't be working in case of PackIt-UExtract combo, because PackIt is unable to ADD anything to existing archives - it can only create new ones.
Similarily, UExtract can extract an archive only as a whole.

Personally, I use File-Roller (the last GTK+2 version - 2.32.2; available as contrib pkg at ibiblio) to add/remove individual items to/from archives, because Xarchive(r) can't handle fully-encrypted (i.e. with headers) 7z/rar archives.
It has some limitations - doesn't support the latest (>= 5.0) unrar, crashes from time to time, but I haven't found anything remotely close to FR in terms of usability...

Greetings!

Thanks for the tip, SFR. I will be looking into file-roller. I 'm not satisfied with xarchiver's usability either.

I'm glad you like it, Russoodle. Smile
___________

Version 1.14:

- added '-mqs' switch to 7z (only for versions >= 15) in order to re-enable old sorting method, which provides better compression for solid archives
- mksquashfs: can detect and use 'lz4' (if mksquashfs supports it)
- also added 'lz4' to PASS_2 tools
- if "Password" field is empty, "Encrypt filenames" checkbox is kept insensitive (works only for Gtkdialog >= 0.8.3)
- removed some superfluous extensions like .gzip, .gtar, etc.
- after clicking X (during packing) PackIt won't be continuing in the background, but will just abort

First post updated!

Greetings!
