Linux archive manager, Open Source WinRar WinZip alternative app

PeaZip is an Open Source (LGPLv3) cross platform 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.
Open Source alternative to 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.

  • pre-built PeaZip archive manager packages for various systems, mostly BSD and Linux distros, on pkgs.orglinux software distributions and Repologylinux software packages

PeaZip archive manager 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.

See complete change log and release notes for list of updates and new features of PeaZip for Linux.
PeaZip x86-64 (amd64) 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.


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.

Structure of PeaZip for Linux packages:

The minimum common structure of  installable package for PeaZip needs to contain:

/usr/lib/peazip/peazip main application's binary
/usr/lib/peazip/pea binary, contains routines for PEA format, encryption, hashing etc
/usr/lib/peazip/res directory, contain application's resources
/usr/lib/peazip/res/bin directory contains binary, architecture-dependent resources (binaries of p7zip, brotli, paq, zstandatd, etc)
/usr/lib/peazip/res/share shortcut points to /usr/share/peazip directory, containing non architecture-dependent resources (texts, graphics)
$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/peazip (if OpenDesktop configuration folder variable is not set it is used $HOME/.config/peazip) directory containing user-specific configuration files

PeaZip Portable packages contains all needed files into application's directory, here called (peazip), which ca be saved anywhere the user prefers.
Portable packages needs (peazip)/res/portable, an empty file to tell the app to run as Portable version.
(peazip)/res/bin contains architecture-dependent binary files.
res/share shortcut which in installable versions points to non-binary resources in /usr/share/peazip is replaced in Portable packages by an actual directory named (peazip)/res/share which contains the non-architecture dependant content.
Being largely independent from underlying system, it can be used as is on different OS, unless the package maintainer whishes to add or remove OS specific features (i.e. reg scripts on Windows machines).
Portable versions saves user configuration in (peazip)/res/conf directory.

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

freedesktop_integration folder, inside PeaZip archive manager 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 an Open Source alternative app.
