Linux zip files software,
7Z BR RAR TAR ZST ZIP extraction
PeaZip is an
Open Source (LGPLv3) cross platform file manager and archive manager
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.
Software alternative to replace WinRar, WinZip and similar propietary
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
provide secure delete function
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
Extraction of RAR / RAR5 archives is natively supported (p7zip Open
Source unrar implementation), separate linux unrar
- based on RarLab's code - is provided solely as alternative rar
Compression to ACE and RAR archives is not supported due the closed
of the formats.
- BUILD FROM SOURCES
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.org and Repology
|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,
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
See complete change
log and release notes for list of updates and new features of
PeaZip for Linux.
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
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.
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
more feedback in case of problems running the application.
DEB packages are supported by Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, and similar
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
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.
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
customize integration of installable version, and for system
integration (file associations,
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.
