Thread: Alternative to Ark?

  1. #1

    Default Alternative to Ark?

    When i open a compressed file accessible by ark, ark opens it but then ark won't show any list of the files it is supposed to extract. Keep in mind that these files were created under a windows xp OS and i am able to modify them or move them to the trash. Also ark could show a downloaded tar.gz file i downloaded under OpenSuse. I searched the forum and couldn't find a way to resolve these problems.

    I just tried to open a .gz file with ark and it wouldnt open. i checked the repository for gzip and according to it , i already have it installed

    Should i just give peazip a try?

    Edit: peazip didnt work as well
