p7zip GUI for Linux — 15 Comments

  1. Thank you very much for your initiative, it worked perfectly on Linux KDE 18.2 Sonya with Plasma 5 (KDE 5.36.0), I suggest you contact 7-zip.org own site to reference your site and get in touch with Ubuntu, Debian or Linux Mint to place your packages in the official repositories.
    Once again thank you very much and congratulations.

  2. Fantastic.. Thanks a ton!!

    works like a charm on Debian 9 testing with the latest 4.11-13 x86_64 kernel.. What a relief to see the “Add to Archive” right-click context menu back..

    Thanks again..

    For the record, just used this tested & verified procedure:

    apt-get install libwxgtk3.0-dev

    manually get src from http://sourceforge.net/projects/p7zip/files/p7zip/

    cd to_download_folder

    tar -xf p7zip_16.02_src_all.tar.bz2

    cd p7zip_16.02/

    make && make 7zG && make 7zFM

    mv bin/7zFM_do_not_use bin/7zFM

    make install

    That’s it!!

  3. I am running Debian Stretch which comes with P7zip 16.02. Is there any way of telling p7zip-gui to use those binaries? Or any way of telling it use any specific binary/package?

    If I uninstall my existing p7zip, it also wants to uninstall file-roller and winetricks, and I don’t know if I can reinstall them without upgrading p7zip as well.


    • update: I installed all the packages, but I got an error trying to add files. I will wait for stretch to come out of testing and hopefully you can release an updated version (or alternatively, instructions on how to do it for myself…).

      Thanks again, it looks very useful!

  4. On Kubuntu 16.04 is a little problem with the context menu function “Add to 7z archive”.
    It does with certain files/folder stop with a “operation not permitted” or “there is no such archive” error. In few cases (close with (X) right upper corner, not OK) there opens a second error window with the text:
    “Operation not permitted
    Can not open the file as [7z] archive”

    Nothing what breaks it. Only a tip. Thanks for the work!

  5. $ 7zFM
    /usr/lib/p7zip/7zFM: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.21′ not found (required by /usr/lib/p7zip/7zFM)
    $ uname -a
    Linux M85M-US2H 3.13.0-24-generic #47-Ubuntu SMP Fri May 2 23:30:00 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

  6. Hallo George,
    is there a way to get the source file to build a Debian Wheezy Binary?

    Greets, Peter
