    Archiver programs for Linux VM's 7-zip fm


    Hi folks this is a good one for anybody running Linux VM's 7-Zip FM Nice GUI and works like the Windows version - handles almost any archive format - if you have the 7-zip program on Wondows thie GUI here is almnost identical. (As with most decent Linux software -- Free of course). (X-archiver is also OK but doesn't handle RAR etc - 7-zip fm is good). Cheers jimbo

  2. 7 Zip or WinRAR?

    The only thing that I don't like about 7-Zip is its Windows 95-vintage graphics. Fortunately, there's a solution for that: 7-Zip Theme Manager.

    • Toolbar themes - change the look of the toolbar in 7-Zip.
    • Filetype themes - change the Windows icons for archive files.
    • 90 toolbar themes and 22 filetype themes to choose from.
    • Changing the SFX-icon (self-extracting archive) is now possible.
    Be sure to grab the 2.1.1. Hotfix to mod any version of 7-Zip from 9.23 to the present release (15.12 as of the time of this post).

    7 Zip or WinRAR?

    7-zip

    It's free, simple, no bloat or nags and has superb compression. LZMA2 is awesome. It can use as many CPU cores as you can offer to the program, meaning it'll provide amazing output rate. In my case even beyond 20MB/s which is lightning fast. Most other archivers take 50x longer (at rates like few hundred KB/s) and only gain 1-2MB better compression with several gigabytes of data. Just not worth the crazy waiting time for such tiny benefits. LZMA2 is fast and has great results.

    Also, as a side note, RAR5 format is now also using a derivate of LZ77 compression (basically LZMA), meaning it'll have roughly the same compression, usually a bit worse than LZMA2 in 7-zip.

    Oh and 7-zip allows you to create higher compression rate standard ZIP archives. Just ramp up the word size parameter and you'll gain quite some better compression rate while keeping the ZIP compatibility.

    There is also alternative named PeaZip. It has a nice interface, supports tons of archives and it's also free. It is a bit quirky sometimes since it's a front end for various archivers...
