What is Xarchiver?
Xarchiver is a lightweight desktop independent archive manager built with the GTK+2 toolkit. It was developed with a simple GUI which that could be used with any desktop environment and would operate using the command line rather than API calls. Xarchiver has been designed from the ground up to be fast and easy-to-use. Its user interface is clean and intuitive, and does not include any confusing or useless options.
Xarchiver supports 7-zip, arj, bzip2, gzip, rar, lha, lzma, lzop, deb, rpm, tar and zip archives, archive navigation with mimetype icons, archive comment ability and archive listing as HTML or txt. Cut/Copy/Paste/Rename actions within files of different archives are supported too. Password detection is automatic for arj, zip and rar files. Password encryption is available for these file types, as well as 7-zip. Xarchiver can also generate self-extracting binaries from zip, 7-zip and rar archives and allows solid archives creation. It supports drag and drop through the XDS protocol, and Firefox-like tabs. An archive multi-extract ability with a progress bar is included. Last but not least a progress bar window is available when using Xarchiver from the command-line or from Thunar file-manager.
