    Default GUI unzip failure

    Xfce in use.

    When I left-click on a .zip file I get...

    Code:
    Failed to execute child process “lxterminal” (No such file or directory). I installed lxterminal, the error disappeared, but it did not unzip.
    So I right-clicked on it and under "Properties/Open with" I selected /usr/bin/unzip which is available. Nothing changed. I can open a terminal and extract it but not by clicking on it.

    Code:
    /DATA/DOWNLOADS> /usr/bin/unzip i.claudius.s01.e13.old.king.log.*.zip
    Archive:  i.claudius.s01.e13.old.king.log.(1976).eng.1cd.(6586313).zip
      inflating: I, Claudius 13 Old King Log.srt  
      inflating: i.claudius.old.king.log.(6586313).nfo  
    ion@localhost:~/DATA/DOWNLOADS>
    Any suggestion will be appreciated.

    Default Re: GUI unzip failure

    I always unzip from a command line, so that I can better control the destination.

    Have you checked whether it was unzipped to a different directory?

    It seems strange that you would be using XFCE, but not already have "lxterminal" installed.
    openSUSE Leap 15.2; KDE Plasma 5.18.5;

    Good diagnosis. It was being unzipped to my home directory. Thank you. And yes, I thought it was strange about "lxterminal" too. Welcome to the strange world of computing.

    Today's XFCE cefault terminal emulator is xfce4-terminal.
    lxterminal is the default terminal emulator in lxde.

    Small mystery.
    Maybe historically both DE were/are installed on this system?
