Subject description: I can't figure it out
 

I can not figure out how to use Xarchive.

I would like to be able to right click on a file and have a menu pick to compress it in zip format.

I don't think I have a wrapper for zips.

Thanks.

Its a bit manual.... you change the 'new file name' to end in .zip rather than .tar.gz when the dialog pops up...if that makes sense

Hi all...

I've been having a problem with this program, too. I can't ever seem to get it to extract anything completely. Sad

Regards...

Hmm selecting nothing should do a full extraction.
I did modify the program and scripts but don't recall having done anything with respect to your problem....only with making archives and faster listings and using 7zip more.

Sometimes I had problems with rar archives with odd filenames inside but usually the listing is incomplete.

Do you have a sample to test?

thanks mike.

I got confused when it wanted to create a folder which in reality was the compressed zip file.

It made the archive pretty quickly.

Hi Mike...

Correct, yes, but even choosing that method, Xarchive can't extract any of the files.

I don't have a sample that's within the size limit but my latest attempt was with xjigsaw here. I was able to extract the .gz file to a tar,gz but can't get beyond that. Exclamation

Ah that particular file seems to be a case of the website/browser misrecognising the mime type and changing it to gz which is wrong...renaming to .pet should sort that out.

Hi Mike...

Thank you but unfortunately, while renaming the file worked, it failed to install. Sad

Well it might be a bad pet..corrupt or something.

If you rename it to .tar.gz it should normal open in xarchive

It doesn't do that either. When I rename it that way, nothing shows up. Perhaps a bug report might be in order?
