Linux zip files software, 7Z BR RAR TAR ZST ZIP extraction utility


PeaZip is an Open Source (LGPLv3) cross platform file manager and archive manager software, providing encryption and compression functions, which open and extract over 200 archive types including mainstream formats like 7Z / XZ / TXZ, ACE (*), BZ2 / TBZ, Brotli BR, GZ / TGZ, ISO, RAR, TAR, WIM, ZIP, ZIPX, Zstandard ZST and more.
Free Software alternative to replace WinRar, WinZip and similar propietary utilities on GNU/Linux systems,
PeaZip provides high compression ratio (compress to 7Z, ARC, PAQ formats), supports encryption / decryption of several archive types, supporting multiple encryption standards (AES, Serpent, Twofish, Blowfish), open and extract proprietary formats (unace, unrar), provide secure delete function (permanent, non recoverable data erasure), compute file hash and checksum to find duplicate content and verify data integrity, split and join files.

(*) Extraction of ACE archives requires separate unace plugin (closed source) available on PeaZip add-ons page.
Extraction of RAR / RAR5 archives is natively supported (p7zip Open Source unrar implementation), separate linux unrar plugin - based on RarLab's code - is provided solely as alternative rar extraction engine.
Compression to ACE and RAR archives is not supported due the closed nature of the formats.

ALTERNATIVE DOWNLOADS FOR LINUX

  • BUILD FROM SOURCES compiling PeaZip source package available both as plain tarball and as Git repository (LGPLv3, written for Lazarus/FPC)
  • pre-built packages for various systems, mostly BSD and Linux distros, on pkgs.orglinux software distributions and Repologylinux software packages

PeaZip for Linux pre-built packages are targeted to a generic Linux machine, and are not built for a specific distribution or version.
So, it is preferable building from sources or, whenever it is possible, it is recommended to install a distribution / version specific package from the official repositories of your Linux distribution rather than the generic binary packages here provided on PeaZip domain.
If a distribution / version specific build of PeaZip is not available for your Linux system, it is a very welcome help to PeaZip project if you request to add it, contacting the maintainers of your repositories.

PEAZIP FOR LINUX X86-64 DOWNLOAD NOTES


See complete change log and release notes for list of updates and new features of PeaZip for Linux.
PeaZip x86-64 is a native build for Linux x86 64 bit and does not require ia-32 libraries to be installed in order to work, but please note some 32 bit-only backend binaries may still require ia-32 libs or may have other specific dependencies, see optional formats dependencies list.
PeaZip is fully modular, so each backend can be removed without problem, to be replaced with i.e. a recompiled binary, or a newer version - until the same syntax is honored.

32 bit packages found on the GNU/Linux x86 download page can be installed on x86-64 systems if ia-32 libs are present.

LINUX INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

PeaZip Portable package (TAR.GZ format) is built to be as self-contained as possbile and can be used on any distribution, regardless the software package manager, it can be simply extracted and launched starting peazip executable - starting "peazip" binary in console provides more feedback in case of problems running the application.

DEB packages are supported by Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, and similar distributions.

RPM packages are for Fedora, CentOS, Suse and similar distributions. Due RPM dependencies checking, the base package does not contain some of the backend executable that can raise incompatibilities with some systems, which can be installed separately from Additional Formats Plugin for Linux.

GTK2 packages may require to install some components of gtk/gdk libraries, as i.e. libgdk_pixbuf, or libgdk-x11-2.0.so.0 (missing in out-of-the box recent Debian distributions), see full list of dependencies for running GTK2 packages.
Qt5 packages provides libQt5Pas.so.1.2.6 which is required to run the Qt version of PeaZip. The binary, or equivalent to libQt5Pas.so.1, must be installed in /usr/local/lib or equivalent directory, such as /usr/lib. You can get up to date libQt5Pas.so using distribution-specific tools, i.e. apt-get install package:architecture, or copying the file manually and running ldconfig.

FreeDesktop_integration directory in PeaZip directory provides sample scripts to customize integration of installable version, and for system integration (file associations, compression/archiving and extraction context menu entries, program's icons) of Portable version so it can fully replace the installable package.

An utter alternative (which can also be used for 7-Zip) can be running one of PeaZip Windows packages through Wine - as for other Windows file compression utilities like Winrar or WinZip, but with the advantage of replacing proprietary software with a Free Software alternative tool.
