Linux file compression utility
PeaZip is an
Open Source (LGPLv3) cross platform file archiver and file compression
software, open and extract
over 180 archive types including mainstream formats like 7Z / XZ / TXZ,
ACE (*), BZ2 / TBZ, GZ / TGZ, ISO, RAR, TAR, WIM, ZIP, ZIPX and more.
Software alternative to replace WinRar, WinZip and similar propietary
GNU/Linux systems, PeaZip provides high compression ratio (compress to
7Z, ARC, PAQ formats), supports
encryption / decryption of several
archive types, open and extract proprietary formats (unace, unrar),
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
Extraction of RAR / RAR5 archives is natively supported (p7zip Open
Source unrar implementation), separate linux unrar
- based on RarLab's code - is provided solely as alternative rar
Compression to ACE and RAR archives is not supported due the closed
of the formats.
PEAZIP FOR LINUX X86-64 DOWNLOAD
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.
"(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,
(GTK2 and Qt DEB, RPM, TGZ) found on
the GNU/Linux x86 download page
installed on x86-64 systems if ia-32 libs are present and architecture
check is disabled when installing.
ALTERNATIVE DOWNLOADS FOR LINUX
can find some external
software repositories, some providing custom compile / build /
file archiver utility for GNU/Linux: distribution/version -specific
packages are usually recommended over generic packages provided on
LINUX INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
may require to
install some components of gtk/gdk libraries, as i.e. libgdk_pixbuf,
see full list of dependencies
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.
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
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
customize integration of installable version, and for system
integration (file associations,
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
Portable packages (TAR.GZ
format) can be simply extracted and launched
starting peazip executable - starting "peazip" binary in console
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 Windows packages through Wine
- as for other Windows file compression utilities like Winrar or
WinZip, but with the advantage of replacing proprietary software with
a Free Software alternative.
