I have upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04 and I am using the classic ubuntu interface instead of Unity. I am facing problems with the Archive Manager. My problem is that I can open archives but I can not modify them or create a new zip file with the GUI. I get an error saying:
zip error: Invalid command arguments (no such option: -)
The easiest way to reproduce it is by right-clicking on any file, pressing compress and selecting .zip in the file format.
I have upgraded my Ubuntu to 10.04, in hopes that my problem would dissapear. Sadly, it hasn't. You see, my archive manager isn't cooperating with me and it's not letting me download anything. For example, I tried to download Sony Vegas and it gave me the following error. (Among other things, but this data seems more important.)" End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In thelatter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on the last disk(s) of this archive. "
This occured when I tried to open the "SonyVegas 8.0 exe" . I have unzipped this file. I think "exe" has something to do with Windows, if so, is there a way I can convert this file so it can be adapted to my archive manager? Or is my archive manager not working, correctly? Does anyone else have these problems, also? Please, I want to be able to download things and my archive manager is the reason I can't.
I'm new to Ubuntu, and everytime i've tried to download a program like iTunes, the "Archive Manager" comes up and says "An Error Has Occured While Loading the Archive". how to fix this or download programs ?
Every shortcut... every program... every link... everything opens in Archive Manager. And then it reports that the archive is not supported... I gotta launch everything directory related through a terminal just to get to navigate through a window manager.

I am running ubuntu 11.04 in classic mode with macubuntu theme and the avant window navigator. I am very impressed. I have downloaded kubuntu and have tried it from the live cd. The question I have, is can I also install this on my pc and choose at login which version to boot and do I install it from the cd at boot up or can I install it from the archive manager in ubuntu 11.04.
Is it possible to have Archive Manager create the specified folder when I enter it into the path field? Like if I want to put something in "/Main/Sub1/Sub2" But "sub2" doesn't exist, can I just have Archive Manager create it and put the files there?
I have in my pc (ubuntu 10.10 32 bit) a folder with about 10.000 files. It is a samba shared folder and so far I could browse fast and easily those files in another old ( Pentium4 1,5Ghz) PC with WinXP. I installed ubuntu 10.10 but the browsing now is toooooooo slow , although the old Pc's performance is considerably faster than before (when I had WinXP). Also, although the old PC's speed is satisfatory now, would it become even faster if I installed an older ubuntu distro?
I'm using Debian 8 Xfce and now using Engrampa as default archive manager. But I can't do "Extract here" right click in Thunar, returning error "No suitable archive manager found". How to get Thunar know Engrampa as its archive manager?
if I go up to Places -> Fileshare(a SMB mount) and click it, it tries to open in "Archive Manager" and breaks.However, the mount is also put on the desktop, and accessible that way.Why, oh why, has my Places menu started trying to open mount points in "Archive Manager" all of a sudden? Fedora 14 / Gnome
I'd like to ask about archive mounter feature, can I mount zip file with read write mode? can gvfsd-archive do that?, or I must use fuse-zip to mount it? If I must use fuse-zip, how I wrap it so I can use it via nautilus or via gvfs-fuse-daemon
It started with Update Manager constantly recycling and not updating. When it starts it shows 295 files and 308MB waiting to download. When I click on 'Install Updates' it appears to go through the process, and then presents me with the same 'waiting to install' window again - and again, and again - in fact as many times as I care to click the 'Install Updates' button. No error messages appear. The 'Settings' button produces the same apparent process as the 'Install Updates' button, but doesn't present me with any other screen.
I've tried all the solutions I could find on these forums and nothing works. The sudo suggestions for Terminal usually produce error codes. adjusting a line in the 'hosts' file. When I tried this I was presented with the obstacle of not having access to the read-only file, and no matter how much I searched I couldn't find how to gain access . While investigating all these possible solutions, I was directed in turn to the Software Sources and Synaptic Package Manager applications, but when I attempted to start them, 'Starting Administrative Application' appeared briefly on the taskbar - and then disappeared!
I am new to the world of linux and when attempting to verify a tar archive I am displayed the following error. When running the command tar cvfW archivename.tar filename directoryname does not yield any errors.

I'm running 10.10 and cannot seem to figure out why apt-get is not working.
It will generally get to the point where it should be unpacking the replacement, but it just hangs there. I have looked to find a way around that, but right now, I'm still looking at
Code: Unpacking replacement libperl5.10 ...
I've had to sudo kill -9 dpkg and apt-get and delete the lock in /var/lib/dpkg/ which may have caused more problems... It seems like the problem started when I attempted to upgrade my version of Flash.
I can't open Package Manager and install or remove anything...this is what it says:
"The error message was:'Error:Opening the cache(E:Encountered a section with no Package:header,Eroblem with MergeList/var/lib/apt/lists repository.akirad.net_dists_akirad-karmic_main_binary-i386_Packages,E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened)'This usually means that your installed packages have unmet depencies.
When I try to open SYNAPTIC PACKAGE MANAGER in my ubuntu 11.04 version, it is showing error. Following error is being displayed:
E: Encountered a section with no Package: header E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_natty_main_bina ry-i386_Packages E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened. E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
Update manager on my computer (running ubuntu 10.04) isn't working. I can open it up from the System menu, but when I press "check" or "Install updates" it the cursor just spins in circles like it's thinking but it never does anything. I can't even quit the program.
I recently did two things that might have caused the problem.
1) I upgraded yesterday from 8.04 to 10.04. I don't remember if I ran Upgrade Manager or not earlier today but I think I might have.
2) I have a dual-boot system and I re-partitioned my hard drive this evening. I shrunk the partition with Ubuntu on it, moved the swap partition over, and expanded the Windows partition. The first time I logged in after re-partitioning the hard drive I got an information message saying that the Update manager hadn't loaded correctly. That was when I first noticed the problem, so I suspect that it has something to do with me moving around files in the re-partitioning.
I'm a newbie in Linux (ubuntu) environment. Well my prob started as I tried to install several w-lan applications. I tried them out and deleted them again. Till (I don't remember the name of the prog) I finally shoot "network manager". I tried some things like: Second installation of ubuntu to get back internet. Downloaded some deb files and installed them in off-line mode.
But it doesn't work because some not satisfiable things happened now I tried to fix over USB live to fix it no chance. What I need is a possibility to install from USB on my first system or boot system one and USB on the same time to use the internet per switching or something like that. Maybe it's possible to update my system wile the USB system is running? Or is there a possibility to use the ubuntu CD and install all needet packages from there because network manager is already in Ubuntu. I think that all OS company's have to think about that , when they deliver a OS that you can choose or afterwords reinstall progs from the original source ...or what?
