    Default 7z

    I was trying to extract a file from a .7z compressed file but it says not possible.
    IT says something like a tmp file does not exist.
    I attach a picture of the error, maybe it can help





    thanks

    * assas1n,

    that looks like the file name starts with a blank, and that confuses KDE. Can you try and rename the archive?

    The compressed file might be broken. Are you able to extract 7z files other than this file?

    How did you do this? I'd try to unpack with 7z on the command line.

    It is difficult to determine the exact problem because your answers to questions have been brief. So, assuming the compressed files are valid, can you explain in more detail the command you used to try the extraction?

    Can you confirm p7zip is installed?

    rpm -qa |grep p7zip
    p7zip-4.58-0.pm.1
    Assuming the compressed files are valid, can you explain in more detail the command you used to try the extraction?

    Now, I'd never used this compression format before, so I tried compressing a desktop image from my desktop with:

    7z a -t7z test.7z snapshot1.png

    7-Zip 4.58 beta Copyright (c) 1999-2008 Igor Pavlov 2008-05-05
    p7zip Version 4.58 (locale=en_GB.UTF-8,Utf16=on,HugeFiles=on,1 CPU)
    Scanning

    Creating archive test.7z

    Compressing snapshot1.png

    Everything is Ok
    Then I deleted the original source file and extracted it again with:

    linux:/home/dean/Desktop # rm -f snapshot1.png
    linux:/home/dean/Desktop # 7z e test.7z

    7-Zip 4.58 beta Copyright (c) 1999-2008 Igor Pavlov 2008-05-05
    p7zip Version 4.58 (locale=en_GB.UTF-8,Utf16=on,HugeFiles=on,1 CPU)

    Processing archive: test.7z

    Extracting snapshot1.png

    Everything is Ok

    Size: 416507
    Compressed: 413786
    If you follow the same process, you should be able to determine whether the problem is the file validity, syntax error or missing library.
