NAME

xarchiver - GTK+ front end for managing archives  

SYNOPSIS

xarchiver [OPTION] [archive]  

DESCRIPTION

Xarchiver is a lightweight desktop environment independent GTK+ front end for handling 7z, arj, bzip2, compress, cpio, gzip, lha, lrzip, lz4, lzip, lzma, lzop, rar, tar, xz, zip, zstd, tar.bz2, tar.gz, tar.lrz, tar.lz, tar.lz4, tar.lzma, tar.lzop, tar.xz, tar.Z, tar.zst and (without their package managers) deb and rpm files.
It detects the file types by their magic header, not by their extension, and utilizes various (un)compressor/(un)archiver command line programs at runtime. It allows you to list, test and create archives and to add, extract and delete files from them. Password protected archives are supported and will be recognized.
