xarchiver

Xarchiver is the only Desktop Environment independent frontend. It only uses GTK+2 for the GUI and nothing else. Obviously you need the command line archivers since Xarchiver is only a frontend. These are the features:

  • Easy to use. No useless options
  • Archives are detected by their magic header and not by extension except .tar.bz2 and .tar.gz
  • Lightweight, you only need GTK+2 and nothing else
  • Smart detection of arj, zip and rar password encrypted archives
  • All the info of the files stored are displayed
  • All common formats are supported: arj, bzip2, gzip, 7z, rar, tar, tar.bz2, tar.gz, zip and RPM (only extract)
  • Fast, even when opening an archive of several megabytes
  • Zip, rar, arj and 7z password encrypted archives are fully supported
  • Support of RPM files without RPM executable, this is useful on distro no RPM-based like Slackware and Archlinux
  • No need of any external viewer like Leafpad or Gedit to view a file in the archive
  • User friendly, a progress bar is shown while operating on the archive
