    zip?

    --encrypt
    Encrypt the contents of the zip archive using a pass-
    word which is entered on the terminal in response to a
    prompt (this will not be echoed; if standard error is
    not a tty, zip will exit with an error). The password
    prompt is repeated to save the user from typing errors.

    With the default installation of openSUSE is installed Ark, so I try to sort through the program specify the code archives but we now this does.
    The terminal was really unknown, and also try to minimize install new applications.

    I'm not sure what you are looking for.

    I use "dar" for making backup archives. And I use the encryption option with that. The program is in the standard repo.

    zip is installed by default. If you want to use Ark, you should have
    made that clear in your question. I don't use it, so I can't help. But
    it has a help menu with a manual, so I would look there.

    There are other graphical archive frontends; for instance, PeaZip.

    flexible authenticated encryption and integrity check schemes) and other
    mainstream formats, with special focus on handling open formats.[7][8]

    while Ark has the ability to open password protected archives, (as far as I'm aware) it can't create them.
    You could try Q7Z (GUI for 7zip) that is in the packman repo.

    unfortunately ark doesn't have an option to set a password (there is a request in kde's bugzilla)
    You could try Q7Z (GUI for 7zip) that is in the packman repo.
    that should work, there is a 64bit port of Igor's official GUI for kde4
    https://software.opensuse.org/package/p7zip-kde4

    you can always use the -p switch from the command line (zip,rar,7zip)

    Code:
    p7z a -tzip -r -p<pass> docs *.odt
    p7zip will make an encrypted zip docs.zip archive from all open document texts in the current directory.

    First, create your archive using your favorite compacting program such as tar, zip, etc. Then, to encrypt the archive with a password, use:

    Code:
    openssl aes-256-cbc -salt -in <filename> -out <filename>.enc
    Decrypt your encrypted archive with your password as follows:

    Code:
    openssl aes-256-cbc -d -in <filename>.enc -out <filename>
