Description:

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, BZ2, GZ, *PAQ, PEA, QUAD/BALZ, TAR, UPX, WIM, XZ, ZIP files

Extract over 150 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:

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 libQt4Pas.so 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 libQt4Pas.so 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.




Changelog:

2014 04 13
5.3.0
New pre-set compression profiles, improved inclusion/exclusion filters, new synthetic archive information function, updated Qt bindings (support Qt 4.5 to 4.8), recompiled with new Lazarus 1.2.0.

 Nots for Linux users

 
 by giorgiotani on: Feb 6 2007
 
Score 50%

PeaZip precompiled packages for Linux have the only dependency for libgdk_pixbuf library, apart from that packages can be extracted and run.
The package statically compiled with GTK2 (primary download) is recommended for most Linux desktop user.
Sources (lazarus/FreePascal) and documentation (.pdf) are available on project's page on SourceForge, along with most up to date precompiled package; for that reason all download links point to this page rather than to the file itself.

 Notes for Linux user

 
 by giorgiotani on: Feb 6 2007
 
Score 50%

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.

Hi, thank you both for the replies!
I must say you are right, however the reason I decided about submitting the application both to gnomefile.org and to kde-apps.org is mainly that the application is not strictly dependent from the desktop environment (in fact it's developed with Lazarus which is a great IDE to write portable applications).
So, as I intended to write the application to be not system or desktop depedent, I also decided (IMHO, coherently) to submit it to both of the major Linux download sites even if it's not strictly neither KDE nor Gnome dependent, even if you are right in that using GTK (even if statically) makes it more close to Gnome world.
I hope to not have misplaced the application submitting it to this site and if you feel it eligible for removal from KDE-Apps, please let me know.
Regards,
Giorgio

well, unless you offer some KDE integration like proper network transparancy using the KIOslaves, the KDE file dialog, servicemenu's etc (these things can be used depending on the app started in KDE or not, afaik), i don't think it belongs here...

Thank you for the feedback, I think real-wolrd user's comments are essential for better focusing the development of a software project.
I think the best way in integrating an application of this type in KDE would be through Konqueror's Service Menus; it would not influence it's portability in different Linux desktops environments and will give fast access to key applications functions for KDE users.
I would be glad in discussing pros, cons and other viable solutions, thank you in advance!

well, currently Ark offers a big amount of integration in KDE but needs some usability work... i'd rather see it improved instead of a new GTK one, as that'll use more resources (having to load a second toolkit) and of course gtk is less efficient to develop with, compared to KDE/Qt, esp KDE4/Qt4 (which is crossplatform as well, btw, even easier).

even better would be better KIOslaves (with write support!!!), possibly almost removing the need for a seperate compression app alltogether.


anyway, you can check what services ark offers, and copy-paste them & change them for peazip...

btw i don't want to discourage you, more Free Software is Good, and i guess there are some innovations to be done for file compression (tough i'm not sure if peazip has any yet), but i don't really intend to use it - it duplicates well-integrated functionality in my desktop environment and doesn't add anything, besides a lot of memory usage (due to static linking and using another than my preferred toolkit).

Well, the application was indeed intended to be as autocontained as possible, to be used with as more close look and feel as possible in different Linux desktops (even ones lighter than KDE and Gnome) and on Windows, making easier to deploy it in mixed desktop environments... in facts it starts from radically different perspective than an application like Ark.
However thanking on your feedback now I'm more aware about the KDE users perception of the importance of integration in the desktop system, and sure in next releases or in upcoming repackaging of the present version I'll integrate it, thanking the very powerful Service Menus mechanism that allows to do so without compromising the portability of the application (in this, KDE is really great).
As for features offered (volume spanning, encryption, p7zip frontend, PAQ compression support) they are exaustively explained in the documentation.

i'll answer here your last post, as i can't reply on that one (due to a limitation in kde-apps.org i guess).

i've read a bit more about your app, and i see a few nice things like multiple-span archives (damn i needed that some time ago). tough i would prefer to see you add support for those to ark and the KIO slaves so all KDE apps and KDE users would benefit from the ability of being able to work transparantly with those files... ;-)

but the author is going to include kde integration (servicemenu's for example, and i hope he finds out how to use the KDE file dialogs when running KDE) so i guess it should stay.

 KDE integration pack

 
 by giorgiotani on: Feb 9 2007
 
Score 50%

Hi, thanking the suggestions of KDE-Apps users I added PeaZip_KDE_integration.tar.gz, a tiny package with .desktop files and instruction (for a generic Linux system with KDE) to make it work (briefly, link PeaZip to one of the bin libraries, copy the two .desktop files to given locations, done!).
PeaZip can be added in this way to Start Menu and to Konqueror's Service Menus; you can still use PeaZip as a portable, autocontained application, just re-applying KDE integration package on the machines where you want it to be integrated with KDE.
This is a first attempt to implement the integration, released quickly following the OS motto 'release early, release soon', so any suggestion and hint to make it more functional, and any test on various Linux distribution (I tested it on my SUSE 10) is very welcome!

Hi, thank you for the positive feedback. FreeDesktop standards makes very simple integrating apps in Linux desktop environments which follows those guidelines, it's really a good initiative.
About GTK vs Qt, my choiche is purely dictated by the current state of support in the IDE I use (Lazarus/FreePascal), which is more mature for GTK than for Qt.
I like choiches and I would not favour one of those two libraries over the other, since both have a suitable licensing scheme for my needs (to deploy a LGPL application).
However, a very positive feature of Lazarus is that is very easy to replace graphic libraries to be used to compile the application, so in the future I definitely would like to compile a Qt-native version of PeaZip when the support status for those libraries will be more mature in Lazarus.

It is not the question, whether GTK sucks or something else, but whether the application _is_ a KDE Application or not! And I think it should not appear here, if it isn't one nor it isn't really related to KDE (e.g. like some shell-scripts).

Hi, I'm sorry to annoying you.
AFAIK KDE-apps.org is focused on applications which runs in KDE, not in Qt-only applications (even if I didn't find any clear notice about that before publishing my entry here, so I may be wrong).
Having my application no hard dependency with Gnome which would make it not run in KDE, I felt poitive about publishing it there, since I'm using it from a while happily in both desktop managers (and other minor ones).
This morning I added a pachage which provides .desktop files and simple instructions to have PeaZip in KDE's start and service menus whithout throwing away it's by design desktop-independence (for a generic KDE release on a generic Linux distribution).
I hope it may be a starting point (certainly not an arrive point) to addressing integration issues that other KDE-apps.org users, more than rightfully, rised yesterday.
I hope you can change your mind about the application, maybe in a future release, and I'm however glad to have offered it to the Open Source community even if I'm sure that it cannot seem useful or wothy to any people or any community.
Regards
Giorgio

 Its not a bad app

Perhaps it will evolved into a full KDE app. I'll give the integration kit a go. Consider creating two versions, one fully KDE and one fully Gnome.
Oh one more thing, consider adding the ability to create self extracting files. I find windows has lot of problems with none native compression formats. It would be useful on systems that don't have a working decompression program (such as a windows system attacked by a virus).

Thanks

Hi, thank you for the feedback!
In the near future I'll invest some developing time in improving KDE desktop integration with .desktop files, hoping also to get some hints ideas from KDE users, from different Linux distribution and from different KDE releases.
Somewhere in the future probably I'll be also able to compile PeaZip for Qt from the IDE I use (Lazarus) but for the moment the support for Qt is under quite early development and I stayed on GTK that have in Lazaru IDE a more mature support, I appreciate both developing environment.
As for self-extracting archive, PeaZip (through included POSIX 7z) is jet able to create Windows self extracting archives (based on 7z compression), and as you say, it's a very handy function, expecially in some situations.
I hope your experience with PeaZip may be good and I hope you may find some functions you may like and find useful!

It's nice to see innovative applications like this one; it brings a bunch of useful features lacking to mainstream similar applications and it's generally (more than) very simple to set up and use.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
