  18 reviews

File-roller is an archive manager for the GNOME environment. It allows you to:

* Create and modify archives. * View the content of an archive. * View a file contained in an archive. * Extract files from the archive.

File-roller supports the following formats: * Tar (.tar) archives, including those compressed with gzip (.tar.gz, .tgz), bzip (, .tbz), bzip2 (.tar.bz2, .tbz2), compress (.tar.Z, .taz), lzip (.tar.lz, .tlz), lzop (.tar.lzo, .tzo), lzma (.tar.lzma) and xz (.tar.xz) * Zip archives (.zip) * Jar archives (.jar, .ear, .war) * 7z archives (.7z) * iso9660 CD images (.iso) * Lha archives (.lzh) * Archiver archives (.ar) * Comic book archives (.cbz) * Single files compressed with gzip (.gz), bzip (.bz), bzip2 (.bz2), compress (.Z), lzip (.lz), lzop (.lzo), lzma (.lzma) and xz (.xz)

File-roller can extract following formats: * Cabinet archives (.cab) * Debian binary packages (.deb) * Xar archives (.xar)

File-roller doesn't perform archive operations by itself, but relies on standard tools for this.

Often having crc errors for large files (500mb or so). But using unrar from the terminal extracts the supposedly bad files (they are not) just fine.

This is how an archive manager should be: intuitive, super simple, versatile, quick. A great work horse. Possibly those doing heaps of compression on a regular basis write their own routines, but this is great for the rest of us. Only gripe is that the name (file-roller) is not the one listed in the mint menu (Archive Manager), but it still appears if you type file-roller.

Undoubtedly the best archive manager for Linux. Should be included everywhere by default, not just Gnome.
