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:

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 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.


2015 11 29
Updated p7zip backend to 15.09 release, can now open RARv5 files out of the box without needing additional unrar plugin
Updated file management tools
Improved Linux installers: most backend were moved to Optional Formats plugin in order to reduce dependencies of the main installation package

I have to say this is one of the most useful apps out there (especially now that it comes in QT). Thank you.

Thank you for this app, it is very professional, and useful. I don't see any other linux archiver coming even close to PeaZip.

That being said there is still room for improvement with QT version of the UI.

Keep up the good work!

Could you make support for drag and drop in QT version ?

I really miss that feature.

Thank you very much BorgQueen and mirzaD for the positive feedback.
I hope to continue improving the quality of the application itself, and of its Qt version, in future updates.

 How do I compile this?

 by warnec on: Oct 22 2009
Score 50%

I use the same procedure for the source code of all KDE and Qt apps, an install script:


This does not work, however. I am not interested in any deb or rpm packages, because my distro uses neither. I am also not interested into the portable version, because, to my knowledge, it's a version statically linked to the Qt version it was compiled on, and I want it to my dynamically shared to the qt libraries on my sytsem, not those that ship with the program.

I also tried downloading the source, but I am unable to run the script. It gives me an error:
CMake Error: The source directory "/home/warnec/Kompilowane/peazip-2.7.1.src" does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt.

I'm using KDE 4.3.2 and qt 4.5.3.

I'll let you know how it worked out here. As I use it very often on both Ark Linux and Yoper Linux.

 access violation

Hi, giorgio.

I've packaged the latest version but I get an access violation message when I run peazip now.

Have you got any idea what it could be?


[unity@localhost ~]$ peazip

Hi, what do you mean with packaged?
I would need to know if it was compiled from sources (and in this case, compiler version, options and host environment), or if a new package was built starting from existing binaries; in that case I would need to know how the package was built.
I'm not familiar with the reported error, it seems a LCL (a library of Lazarus) component is in error, but it is too much generic and googling about it pointed me to no insightful result.

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.
