It's nice that it is standard with KDE...

...however: It hardly ever works - I think on half my KDE installs it either did not work at all or only permitted the standard compress from within dolphin.

At first I kept blaming KDE and Dolphin but it turns out that Ark itself is to be blamed as it accepts file but not directories.

So, what's use of such packer? None :(

This is really the best 7Zip Alternative for Linux with a easy to use GUI.

I love 7Zip for Windows NT, XP and 7. But in Linux there is Ark, also there are a lot of other things, just they cant reach the level of Ark.

I've no experience with PeaZip. But i just installed it on my Min 17.3, here is my first opinion:

  • Very nice look, top designed!
  • Top for so much translations!
  • The pre-configured directories aren't located to linux mint. (you can handle it yourself, so nothing dramatical)
  • Drag and Drop do not work :'/ or I just didn't get it to work. All-In-One: It's good for user which had , if you are a noob without Drag and Drop files, it isn't for you.

But you have to recognize I don't use it main.
