Description:

#7Z is a 7-Zip GUI for Windows; Q7Z is a P7Zip GUI for Linux. #7Z and Q7Z attempt to simplify data compression and backup.

7-Zip is a file archiver for Windows with a high compression ratio. It was designed by Igor Pavlov. P7Zip is a port of 7-Zip from Windows to Linux.

Use Q7Z or #7Z if you want to:
* Update existing archives quickly
* Backup multiple folders to a storage location
* Create or extract protected archives
* Lessen effort by using archiving profiles and lists




Changelog:

* Added the ability to toggle the Auto-Quit state
* Enhanced the information notification techniques
* Improvements were made to the update checking code
* Made several minor changes to the code structure

this news is wonderful. but i couldnt tried yet, because i need an rpm version for fc5. my suggestions;
1) i wanna see a gui like exact windows version of 7-zip.
2) not just a gui. i wanna be able to use all features of 7-zip.

Thanks for the positive feedback.

You don't need an RPM to run K7Z on FC5. You can just enter "python ./Source/K7Z.py". See the README for more info.

I'm also running FC5 so I'll include a FC5 RPM with K7Z 0.2.

1) I don't really have the time to write a full GUI like 7-Zip. Also, since PyQt4 code runs decompiled, the K7Z GUI could become sluggish if it has too many features.

2) I'll add more features in the coming releases. K Menu and Konqueror integration will be available in K7Z 0.2.

If you can all let me know which missing features are most important, I'll implement them first.

Yes. P7Zip (and therefore K7Z) can extract password-protected RAR archives. For a full list of supported archives, see the README.

 header encryption??

 
 by chandraiitk on: Oct 20 2006
 
Score 50%

well, there is an option Scramble for Header Encryption while compressing files(v0.40). I tried and it worked well. However, I would like to know that what does it exactly do and how the security is improved if I choose this option than otherwise?? After using this encryption option, I tried to extract using command like unzip program and after giving the password it extracted similar as how it had extracted when I hadnt used the encryption option. Please tell me a bit about it.

Thanks!!

Thanks for the query.

The 'Scramble' option only works with 7-Zip archives and doesn't improve the overall security from a technical aspect.

If 'Scramble' is disabled, the filenames within the archive can still be viewed without needing to enter the password. If 'Scramble' is enabled, the internal filenames of the archive are not revealed until the password has been entered.

'Scramble' is useful when securing important information, such as financial records.

Thanks for the clarification. Now I am out of the rabbit hole. The application is no doubt quite good. However, one more thing I observed in your program is password protection works only with zip and 7zip achieves. It didn't work with .gz or .bz2 type of compressions!! Any plan of improvements to incorporate these types as well?

Thanks!

 Re: BZip2 Passwords

Score 50%

Thanks for the info report.

K7Z sends the '-p' (password) flag to '7z' for all archive types. It seems that P7Zip can't create passwords for GZip and BZip2 archives, therefore I can't implement this feature request.

I've checked both the help and manual files of BZip2, but I couldn't find anything about passwords in there either. It's possible that GZip and BZip2 archives cannot be password-protected at all. This seems likely since both were designed to compress tarballs only.

ya..u r right. I think better to create tar ball and compress it using zip or 7zip if in case anyone wants password protection. I think this should not be a problem because both can be done in just one go.

Thanks anyway for the useful app and please keep it improving!

Yes, it'd be nice to have K7Z available in packages for other Linux denominations.

RedHat, Debian and Slackware (variant) users can all create packages using 'CheckInstall', although I've only tested this on FC6. From the K7Z dir, simply run "cd Build/ ; ./CheckInstall".

Let me know if it doesn't run smoothly.

Everything is fine until: "cp: cilj ,/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/` ni imenik: No such file or directory"

I've heard that Kubuntu is a good distribution; Unfortunately I don't know much about it yet. Let's start by trying to educate me.

What is the value of your '$KDEDIR' environment variable? In Bash, run "set | grep KDE" to find out and email the result to me. My email address is listed in 'Doc/AUTHORS.txt". On FC6, the result is "KDEDIR=/usr". So, my Service Menu dir is therefore "/usr/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/".

Also tell me, does the "/usr/share/apps/konqueror/" dir exist in Kubuntu? If not, does "/share/apps/konqueror/" exist instead? Once we've found the location of the 'konqueror' dir, we can create a 'servicemenus' dir there and everything should be okay.

Take the *.rpm and do on the console:

fakeroot alien kz7-insert.version.number.here.rpm

Then you get a *.deb that is installable and works. As long as the rpm package is LSB (Linux Standard Base) compliant this will work on any other LSB compliant distro ...

Provided that you have alien installed from the (k)Ubuntu pools. ;-)

 Help?

I have all the dependencies installed and K7Z compiled and installed without a hitch. However, when I go to compress or extract something, K7Z coughs up an error saying that "there are no installed archive handlers".

I have all the relevant compression utilities in the /usr/bin directory. I am able to use them outside K7Z so there's nothing wrong with them.

I looked for a way to point K7Z to the compression utilities in /usr/bin, but found none.

Any idea what I could do to resolve the problem?

Thanks in advance,

Having '7za' isn't enough; you also need '7z', which is more powerful. I know, it sounds a bit confusing.

Some Linux distributions - like RedHat and Fedora - put '7z' in a package called 'p7zip-plugins'. You'll need to install this as well. I couldn't make 'p7zip-plugins' a dependency because some distributions might just put everything into 'p7zip'.

If this doesn't solve the problem, send me an email with details about your system. My email address is listed in "Doc/AUTHORS.txt".

Thanks for your reply cbg.

Ahh, yeah that is, indeed, a bit confusing. After reading your reply I realized that I had only compiled 7za and I didn't get the plugins as well.

I got the p7zip sources and recompiled again, this time with the "make all3" option.

I can create 7z archives now with K7Z, but I can't extract them. I can extract them via the CLI though using '7z x file.7z'.

I have a new question now. The readme file for p7zip cautions:

"DO NOT USE the 7-zip format for backup purpose on Linux/Unix because :
- 7-zip does not store the owner/group of the file.

On Linux/Unix, in order to backup directories you must use tar !
to backup a directory : tar cf - directory | 7za a -si directory.tar.7z
to restore your backup : 7za x -so directory.tar.7z | tar xf -"

Since K7Z is meant to be a backup program, is it wise to use 7z instead of 7za?

K7Z looks very promising and I hope that I could make use of it. Thanks for creating and distributing it.

On Linux, it's always wise to backup using GNU Tar because file permissions are preserved. K7Z 0.5 uses P7Zip's inbuilt tarball maker, which unfortunately doesn't preserve permissions either. I've emailed the author and he recommended to use GNU Tar on Linux, which I'll implement in K7Z 0.5.1.

Where synchronisation speed is more important than file permissions, I'd recommend staying away from tarballs altogether and just using the 7-Zip format. I haven't had any trouble with file permissions using this format, despite it being designed for use in Windows.

More archive formats are supported by '7z', so K7Z will continue to use this instead of '7za'. Your choice to compile P7Zip using "make all3" appears to be correct, although you might also like to try "make 7z". Which Linux distribution are you using? If it's RedHat, Debian or Slackware based, there might already be P7Zip packages available.

I'm surprised that K7Z can create but not extract 7-Zip archives on your machine, and I'd like to find out why not. Please email me a description of the steps you're taking, and the error message produced. My email address is: Chris.G.27 (at) Gmail.com

Thanks for the compliment!

This error means that your P7Zip installation didn't include the SFX module when it was made.

I suggest you download the P7Zip source and use "make all2" when building it. You can get P7Zip 4.44 here: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=111810

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
