Description:

PeaZip is a cross-platform, desktop neutral file archiver utility that provides an unified portable GUI (Qt and GTK2) for many Open Source technologies like 7-Zip, FreeArc, PAQ, UPX...

Create 7Z, ARC, BZ2, GZ, *PAQ, PEA, QUAD/BALZ, TAR, UPX, WIM, XZ, ZIP files

Extract over 150 archive types: ACE, ARJ, CAB, DMG, ISO, LHA, RAR, UDF, ZIPX and many more...

Features of PeaZip includes extract, create and convert multiple archives at once, create self-extracting archives, split/join files, strong encryption with two factor authentication, encrypted password manager, secure deletion, find duplicate files, calculate hashes, export job definition as scripts.

Installation and integration in *x systems:

In order to reduce dependencies installable PeaZip packages for Linux needs to satisfy, since release 5.9.0 all backend except for p7zip were moved to "Optional Formats" plugin, which can be installed separately if needed extracting the package in peazip/res directory.
The plugin is not needed by Portable versions of the software.

If experiencing problems running PeaZip compiled for Qt, start it as:
peazip -style=cleanlooks

If experiencing problems with PeaZip compiled for Qt widgetset, it is available PeaZip compiled for GTK2 libraries as alternative, or it is possible to compile the application for its own Qt version using Lazarus/FreePascal IDE, which supports compiling the sources for various widgetsets: Win32, WinCE, fpGUI, Carbon, Qt, GTK1, GTK2.

On Linux systems, PeaZip installer automatically create menu entries for KDE (on most versions); to add PeaZip to Gnome menu copy the "Archiving" folder placed in PeaZip/Freedesktop_integration/nautilus-scripts to system's Nautilus script's folder (in most versions open "Scripts" menu in system's context menu, and select "Open script's folder").

Qt widgetset packages requires Qt 4.5 or more recent, and needs libQt4Pas.so installed in /usr/local/lib or equivalent directory (copy the file and run ldconfig; it is done automatically in installable packages), such as /usr/lib or /usr/lib32 on some 64 bit distributions.
A copy of libQt4Pas.so is available in PeaZip's directory, ./usr/local/share/PeaZip/ for the installable packages.
If the Qt version does not start on some systems, as some system's visual styles may cause recursive repainting error, you can fix the problem starting it in a console (or script) as: peazip -style=cleanlooks

On 64 bit systems, backend binaries in PeaZip/res path can be freely replaced by users with respective 64 bit counterpart (if available).

PeaZip Portable is standalone software and doesn't need installation and can be used from removable or remote paths without changing the host system (useful is system needs to stay library-freezed).

'Freedesktop_integration' folder in PeaZip's path contains .desktop files and Nautilus scripts to help users to configure tighter integration of PeaZip with desktop environment's menus.

Hi
I'm getting that odd problem again when using the kservicemenus..

"PeaZip cannot find the configuration files (probably because deleted or moved) and should be reinstalled"

Peazip itself launches when I click on the binary. Same setup as the previous version.

Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry I have no idea how this old post ended up here.

Disregard it, as I stated in the above one (these 2 posts), its working fine.

Glad to see confirmed it is all fine now; the problem indeed was correlated with the old one (missing resources in the res path) that would trigger PeaZip to give this warning message at startup.

Thank you for have tracked this issue; I need a couple more of details:
Does filenames of objects giving this error contains spaces or extended characters?
Does this behaviour happens on KDE, Gnome or other desktop managers (I ask because the procedure for handling filenames is desktop specific), and if you have more desktop managers, does this happens on all of them?
Thank you again for your feedback, feel free to report here or on application's forum (or tracker) on SourceForge.

Hello,

"Does filenames of objects giving this error contains spaces or extended characters?"

no, I was testing with names: test1.jpg, test2.doc, test3.pdf, zipped to: /home/user/test1.zip, /home/user/test2.zip, /home/user/test3.zip

"Does this behaviour happens on KDE...":
I am using KDE 3.5.9 with OpenBox 3.4.6,

Does Peazip require other software for preview? I ask because I installed KDE from command line and maybe I am missing something.

Thank you for the additional information, I'll track the issue.

"Does Peazip require other software for preview?"
No, preview (or doubleclick) does:
extract to temporary a folder (created in the output path, so with same access policies intended for the real output);
make a standard call to KDE to run the file with associated application.

Does "extract and open with..." entries work on your system? It changes the first step only, extracting to output dir rather than to a temporary dir.

Thank you for working on this issue.

I hope I understood what I should do :), I did following steps:

1. Created zipped file (1287.zip) with one file (1287.doc) on Desktop (/home/user/Desktop).
2. Created temp folder on Desktop.
3. Opened 1287.zip with Peazip.
4. In Peazip I choose "Extract to..." -> "Extract all to..." (/home/user/Desktop/temp) - working good
5. "Extract and open with..." -> "associated application" -> (Overwrite YES) -> ERROR

But, when I open a zip file contains another zip file - everythink works good, Peazip open another peazip window. I think that peazip has problem with determine associated application or path to associated application bin file, because when I double click on file /home/user/Desktop/1287.doc it is opened with OpenOffice.

whenever I try to use peazip 2.0 I get this error
"Executable not found: " ".
Press ok to ignore and risk data corruption
Press cancel to kill the program.

So what am I missing?


Thanks

PS, I like all the improvements in general. The interface customization options are great.

Very strange! I didn't get that problem testing PeaZip 2.0 under my standard test Linux machines: OpenSUSE 10.3 with Gnome and KDE installed, Debian 4 with Gnome only and Mandriva spring 2007 (live) with KDE only.
Could you please submit detailed feedback to application's tracker on SourceForge: PeaZip package(s) tested, distribution used, 32 or 64 bit system, Gnome or KDE installed, when did the error appeared, if previus version runs fine on the same machine(s) and any other information you find useful to understand and replicate the error...
Thanks!

The Problem was my fault, I forget to copy over the res dir. Sorry. The app works perfectly now. Great job. Using your instructions I've created my own kde servicemenu, compress to .exe. Saves me tons of time compressing GPL software for my MS using friends as I ween them off it.

Thank you. I noticed you added my feature request of the job title in the titlebar. Thank you very much. It makes it easier to keep track of which is which. This is a wonderful app.

I'm still hoping you will try to port natively to KDE. This would make it faster as well as far more intergrated.

No pressure, just food for thought.

:D

HI, this is a feature request.
It is possible to have peazip ID the item/directory etc being compressed? I often compress more than one thing at at time (I have a Quad Core hehehehe).

Thanks for the app!

Qt support in Lazarus IDE is getting better each release; I'm experimenting about it and I'm confident future releases will come precompiled for more widgetsets than today.
My dream is that at a certain point all widgestets targeted by Lazarus (a quite impressive list) will have a version of PeaZip compiled for, and certainly Qt is the first on the list.

Hi,
this is a gtk app, so opendesktop.org would be a better place.
The config file isn't writable for common users.
The file masks are set to 0755 for all files after installing from peazip-xxx.tar.gz.
Shared files should be installed under /usr/share, not /usr/bin/PeaZip. Only the executives (peazip and helper) should be found there. Or use /opt.
The desktop files for extracting should only show up on mime for archives.

I've changed it for myself, but perhaps you can solve it in your next release.

Greetings

I know this is a gtk app but it keeps getting better. I do have one suggestion for the app in general. Add to sxf servicemenu for all OSes. I'm always collecting GPL software that was ported to windows to show them how good FLOSS apps are. The sxf makes it even easier for them. Its helped so many move to FLOSS.

Thanks!
