Linux 7Z RAR ZIP file archiver

PeaZip file archiver utility works with most common archive types as 7Z, ACE(*), RAR, TAR, ZIP, ZIPX, installers (DEB, RPM), disk images (DMG, ISO, UDF, WIM), cutting edge experimental formats like PAQ family (Hutter prize winner) and new FreeArc's ARC (strong encryption, very efficient data compressor).

PeaZip for Linux provides the same wide array of data archiving, compression, strong encryption (AES, Serpent, Twofish), file management features (secure data deletion, compute checksum/hash of files), and uses same intuitive user interface on Microsoft Windows and on various flavours of Linux and BSD, supporting Gnome, KDE, XFCE, and other desktop managers.

Like Arkarchiving tool and FileRollerarchive manager archivers, PeaZip works as frontend application for Open Source components from 7-Zip/p7zip and other great projects (FreeARC, PAQ, UPX...), providing an unified GUI file archiver tool that represents a Free Software replacement for WinRar, WinZip and similar software utilities, with the benefit of being natively portable, cross-platform, independent from widget set and window manager.

GTK2 version packages may require to install some components of gtk/gdk libraries, as i.e. libgdk_pixbuf, see full list of dependencies for installing GTK2 packages. Qt version packages requires Qt 4.3.4 or more recent, and needs and libqt4pas5 installed; it is recommended you install most up to date missing libraries using distribution-specific methods, i.e. apt-get install libqt4pas5:i386. See full list of dependencies for installing Qt packages.

DEB packages are built for: Debian, Ubuntu / Kubuntu, Knoppix, ... RPM packages are built for: Fedora, Mandriva, SUSE, Red Hat, ArkLinux, ... TGZ packages are buit for Slackware based distibutions.

(*) ACE files extraction requires to download and install UNACE Plugin for Linux, based on WinAce unace code (compiled for Linux platform), that being incompatible with Open Source distribution model is provided as separate package, see Add-ons page.
RAR files extraction is supported out of the box, including new RAR5 format, using OpenSource unrar implementation from 7-Zip / p7zip project.
On Add-ons page it is featured UNRAR5 Plugin for Linux, based on (WinRar) RarLab's unrar code, that is not compatible with Open Source distribution model and is provided as separate download: it is made avaliable only as optional replacement to Open Source p7zip's unrar tool.

If one of generic GTK2 or Qt installers provided on this page does not work on the target machine, please consider as alternative using a Portable version (no chance of issue with package management system preventing the installation of the entire package due to missing dependencies for some backend binaries), or to search your distribution's software repository for distribution / version specific packages (either built compiling from sources with most appropriate options, or simply re-packing the application with latest package manager supported for the system), that are generally recommended for better user experience on GNU/Linux systems.

FreeDesktop_integration folder in PeaZip's directory contains script examples for integrating Portable versions in the host system, or to enhance / customize integration of installable packages.
