There are different solutions and programs available to manage compressed files. One of the most highly rated ones is PeaZip, the compression tool for Linux that's compatible with a wide range of formats, including the most popular file types on different platforms.
A compression tool for unexperienced users.
To start off, the first thing we see in this tool is a very user-friendly interface, which makes the program more usable. In fact, the program itself is focused on users that aren't very familiar with this kind of application.
Main features of PeaZip
- Capable of working with over 150 formats of compression files (7Z, RAR, TAR, ZIP, WIPZX…), installers (DEB, RPM…) and disc images(ISO, UDF, DMG…).
- Advanced file management functions (search, bookmarks, thumbnails, hashing, find duplicates, file conversion...).
- Interface inspired on disc burning programs.
- Compatible with the main distros (Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, Mandriva, SUSE, Red Hat, Slackware…).
Without a doubt, a very versatile tool that allows us to open and extract compressed files from other platforms like Windows or Mac.
