PeaZip not working [Solved]

Postby coppolino97 » 2018-08-10 20:58

Hello guys,
from a few days I can not extract compress file using GUI becouse when I execute Peazip appear this error:
Failed to execute child process "peazip" (File o directory non esistente).


I have just tried to purge this software and I have just installed it again using the deb package using the CLI but there are always the same error.
I have just tried with
Code: Select all
apt-get install --fix-broken

but I do not solve my problem. :(
Someone can help me?
Thanks so much!

peazip is not a debian package (not in the repositories anyway) so your best COA would be to contact the developers to see if it is a known bug??

As an alternative you could try one of the Debian packages that have a GUI to compress/decompress your files
Gnome - file-roller
Kde - ark
General - xarchiver

I think you should give a little more details, instead of making us do searches to figure out , What is "peazip" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PeaZip
It does not appear to be a Debian package,
https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=peazip&searchon=names&suite=stable&section=all
You have searched for packages that names contain peazip in suite(s) stable, all sections, and all architectures.

Sorry, your search gave no results


Perhaps read:
https://wiki.debian.org/DontBreakDebian
On Debian installing software from random websites is a bad habit. It's always better to use software from the official Debian repositories if at all possible. The packages in the Debian repositories are known to work well and install properly. Only using software from the Debian repositories is also much safer than installing from random websites which could bundle malware and other security risks.


Using 'apt' and
Code: Select all
apt-get install --fix-broken
only works on
packages installed from Debian repositories, not on random packages downloaded from random websites.
There are packages made for Debian, in the debian repositories that will work
fine for unzipping (extract compress file) , also usually a "zip" file can easily be decompressed with the 'unzip' command, see :
Code: Select all
man unzip

You might need to install it, though.
https://packages.debian.org/search?suite=stable&section=all&arch=any&searchon=names&keywords=unzip
Since you don't even bother telling us what version of Debian you are using, I am guessing it is "stretch",
https://packages.debian.org/stretch/unzip

to remove or repair this "Peazip", I suggest you contact the author at the site where ever you downloaded it from, or a "Peazip" support site, if there is one,

Of course you could learn to extract compress files the way the rest of us do by using CLI in a terminal. It's not that difficult.

Thanks so much guys for your replay!
Yes I have just used unzip to decompress zip file, but sometime it is really confortable use the GUI.

packages installed from Debian repositories, not on random packages downloaded from random websites.

I do not know this stuff, thanks to have explain
Finally I don't know XArchiver before, now I have remove PeaZip and I have just installed this software and it is great!

Thanks so much :D
