PeaZip is a cross-platform, desktop neutral file archiver utility that provides an unified portable GUI (Qt and GTK2) for many Open Source technologies like 7-Zip, FreeArc, PAQ, UPX...

Create 7Z, ARC, Brotli, BZ2, GZ, *PAQ, PEA, QUAD/BALZ, TAR, UPX, WIM, XZ, ZIP, Zstandard files

Extract over 180 archive types: ACE, ARJ, CAB, DMG, ISO, LHA, RAR, UDF, ZIPX and many more...

Features of PeaZip includes extract, create and convert multiple archives at once, create self-extracting archives, split/join files, strong encryption with two factor authentication, encrypted password manager, secure deletion, find duplicate files, calculate hashes, export job definition as scripts.

Installation and integration in *x systems:

In order to reduce dependencies installable PeaZip packages for Linux needs to satisfy, since release 5.9.0 all backend except for p7zip were moved to "Optional Formats" plugin, which can be installed separately if needed extracting the package in peazip/res directory.
The plugin is not needed by Portable versions of the software.

If experiencing problems running PeaZip compiled for Qt, start it as:
peazip -style=cleanlooks

If experiencing problems with PeaZip compiled for Qt widgetset, it is available PeaZip compiled for GTK2 libraries as alternative, or it is possible to compile the application for its own Qt version using Lazarus/FreePascal IDE, which supports compiling the sources for various widgetsets: Win32, WinCE, fpGUI, Carbon, Qt, GTK1, GTK2.

On Linux systems, PeaZip installer automatically create menu entries for KDE (on most versions); to add PeaZip to Gnome menu copy the "Archiving" folder placed in PeaZip/Freedesktop_integration/nautilus-scripts to system's Nautilus script's folder (in most versions open "Scripts" menu in system's context menu, and select "Open script's folder").

Qt widgetset packages requires Qt 4.5 or more recent, and needs installed in /usr/local/lib or equivalent directory (copy the file and run ldconfig; it is done automatically in installable packages), such as /usr/lib or /usr/lib32 on some 64 bit distributions.
A copy of is available in PeaZip's directory, ./usr/local/share/PeaZip/ for the installable packages.
If the Qt version does not start on some systems, as some system's visual styles may cause recursive repainting error, you can fix the problem starting it in a console (or script) as: peazip -style=cleanlooks

On 64 bit systems, backend binaries in PeaZip/res path can be freely replaced by users with respective 64 bit counterpart (if available).

PeaZip Portable is standalone software and doesn't need installation and can be used from removable or remote paths without changing the host system (useful is system needs to stay library-freezed).

'Freedesktop_integration' folder in PeaZip's path contains .desktop files and Nautilus scripts to help users to configure tighter integration of PeaZip with desktop environment's menus.

7.3.0 10 days ago

Improved browsing, extraction, archiving, added BLAKE2 hash, added support for more formats, new 64 bit DEB installer



13 years ago

Since it's a standalone, almost autocontained application (apart for the aforementioned libgdk_pixbuf library dependency), it is not dependent from a particular Linux distribution or a particular desktop manager (I tested it succesfully on KDE and Gnome, on SUSE and Ubuntu), and can run from the path you prefer, even a removable unit.
That make it a feasible solution for a portable archiver which can run on different Linux machines, and the Windows port make it IMHO a good choice for mixed Linux/Windows user environments, having a single, almost identical, application to support on both platforms.

It is not a Nautilus script but a link to a proprietary application.
