    How can I open and create .7z files via Ubuntu,s default Archive manager. I was able to do so for rar files by this command.

    sudo apt-get install rar unrar

    Is there such a command for 7z files?

    Thanks

    Hi aigle:

    P7zip is in the repos (universe).

    Yes. There are 3 choices in the repos. I have p7zip-full. It has always worked well from the context menu (although I do not open those files too often).

    ok, it works.

    sudo apt-get -y install unrar p7zip p7zip-full

    and then use default archive manager.

    thanks
