7Z RAR ZIP utility for Linux

PeaZip is an Open Source (LGPLv3) cross platform archiver and file compression software, manage extraction of over 180 archive types including mainstream formats like .7z, .arc, .bz2, ace(*), .cab, .gz, .iso, .rar, .tar, .wim, .zip, .zipx.
Free Software tool allowing to replace WinRar, WinZip and similar utilities on GNU/Linux systems, provides high compression (7Z, ARC, *PAQ), supports encryption / decryption of several encrypted archive types, provide secure delete function (permanent, non recoverable data erasure), compute file hash and checksum to find duplicate content and verify data integrity, split and join files.

(*) Extraction of ACE archives requires separate unace plugin (closed source) available on PeaZip add-ons page.
Extraction of RAR/RAR5 archives is natively supported, separate unrar plugin is provided solely as alternative rar extraction engine.

PeaZip Portable x86-64 is a native build for Linux x86 64 bit and does not require ia-32 libraries to be installed in order to work, but please note some 32 bit-only backend binaries may still require ia-32 libs - once 64 bit executables are available, they can be freely replaced in PeaZip's directory due its modular software nature.

The "(all)" packages are x86 32 bit build (that consequently requires ia-32 libraries to run on 64 bit systems) with architecture check de-activated to allow installation on 64 bit operating systems.
Some package managers may complain of the architecture check being de-activated in binary packages (i.e.
Ubuntu Software Center will prompt "This package is of bad quality") because this mechanism is usually employed to pack non-binary content such as documentation and media rather than applications; this will also raise similar warning in Lintian, informing that architecture-independent package contains binary.
You can try alternative package managers like dpkg, apt-get, aptitude, and synaptic.

32 bit packages (GTK2 and Qt DEB, RPM, TGZ) found on the GNU/Linux x86 download page can be installed on x86-64 systems if ia-32 libs are present and architecture check is disabled when installing.

Here you can find some external software repositories, some providing custom compile / build / packaging of PeaZip file archiver utility for GNU/Linux: distribution/version -specific packages are usually recommended over generic packages provided on PeaZip domain


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.

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.

To reduce the dependencies the installers has to satisfy to successfully run on the host system, all backend binaries (except p7zip) were moved to Optional Formats plugin external package (see optional formats dependencies list), which is needed for Linux installable versions to handle arc, lpaq, paq, zpaq, quad, and upx. To install this package, simply extract its content to PeaZip's res/ directory. This package is optional and it is meant only for Linux installable versions, Portable versions already comes with all the backend binaries.

FreeDesktop_integration directory in PeaZip directory provides sample scripts to customize integration of installable version, and for system integration (file associations, compression/archiving and extraction context menu entries, program's icons) of Portable version so it can fully replace the installable package.

If installable versions of PeaZip file compression utility does not work on the target machine due dependencies or other incompatibility issues with package management system, please consider as alternative to replace it with the Portable version.
Portable packages (TAR.GZ format) can be simply extracted and launched starting peazip executable - starting "peazip" binary in console provides more feedback in case of problems running the application.

An utter alternative (which can also be used for 7-Zip) can be running one of PeaZip for Windows packages through Wine - as for other Windows file compression utilities like Winrar or WinZip, but with the advantage of replacing proprietary software with Free Software.
