    Question p7zip-full equivalent on openSUSE?

    I use ISO images as archives for backing up data because they can be quickly burned onto optical media when I need to do that. I often need to access these ISOs without burning them, which requires either mounting the ISO or extracting it as if it were an archive file. I very much prefer to simply extract it, and this is easy on Windows with 7-zip. 30 seconds of Googling told me that Linux needs a package called "p7zip-full" to offer the same functionality, but "zypper install p7zip-full" returns an error, saying that no such pacakge exists. I Googled for another 20 minutes to find an equivalent package in opensuse but I did not find anything relevant.

    It would be great to know the opensuse equivalent of p7zip-full. Any help would be much appreciated.

    My system:
    openSUSE Leap 42.2
    Addtional Repositories:
    Packman
    Libdvdcss
    Nvidia Drivers
    Wine

    I am not sure what the difference between p7zip and p7zip-full is, but p7zip is available in the openSUSE repositores.

    Code:
    sudo zypper in p7zip
    That will install it.

    You can also use ark or file-roller to browse or extract ISO-images.
    And there's kio-iso that allows to browse them in KDE file managers like dolphin and krusader (and the KDE file dialog).

    A GUI application that can mount them for you is acetoneiso2.

    There's also "ISO Master is a graphical editor for ISO images with support for ISO9660, RockRidge, and Joliet file names. It is useful for extracting, deleting, or adding files and directories to or from an ISO image."

    https://software.opensuse.org/packag...term=isomaster

    Installed it this week to manipulate an ISO file, nice and easy.

    Uh? What this has to do with the original request?
    Is it some kind of spam?
    I don't find anything on that site that may have to do with p7zip o 7zip.

    if you are talking about the unrar module afaik it's included in the release
    the only thing is that the current version in the main repo is 9.20.1 but you can get the latest from the archiving repo
    Code:
    zypper in http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Archiving/openSUSE_Leap_42.2/x86_64/p7zip-16.02-52.1.x86_64.rpm
    or grab a prebuild binary blob from sourceforge.net

    if you are looking for the 7zip gui ported to linux try here
    https://software.opensuse.org/package/p7zip-gui
    I've never used it I'm not sure how complete it is
    as was said before both ark and dolphin can open iso files
    I also use doublecmd an OFM that can open iso files it also uses p7zip for a lot of archive support
    https://software.opensuse.org/package/doublecmd-qt

    Thanks much for all the responses!

    I'm really sorry, I should have specified when I started this thread that all my ISO images have UDF filesystems. Ark insists that the archive is empty and when I select "Extract here" from the shell context menu nothing happens.

    I installed ISO Master but it gives me an error message that the image is not ISO9660 filesystem.

    K3b can burn the images, but only after I installed libudf0 and cdrskin.

    I still haven't found a way to extract ISO images with UDF filesystems on Linux, but I already use Wine for gaming, so it just occurred to me that I can just install the Windows version of 7-zip and use that. That's an acceptable workaround for me, but there are no context menus (as there shouldn't be, given that it's running through Wine).

    Thanks for jogging my brain - though this might be functionality that will be included in Linux some day. Unless it already is and I just can't find it.
