Ubuntu :: Archive Manager Unable To Open Pdf Files
Nov 7, 2010
surprisingly come across this file that the ubuntu archive manager is simply unable to unpack.these are some articles that i am trying to download.strangely i have never heard of the format and the page asks me to download "stuffit expander" to allow me to view the pdf files.
however when i download the file saving it on the desktop, and try to open it, archive manager is simply unable to do so!this is the title of the downloaded file -
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 downloaded some e-books in the format .rar. when i am extracting them i am getting error as There is no command installed for RAR archive files. Do you want to search for a command to open this file?
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 ?
I am unable to open my newly installed ubuntu 9.10 (karmic-koala) asv it is showing some error message which is as follows:
E: Type 'n' is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/bisigi-ppa-karmic.list E: The list of sources could not be read. Go to the repository dialog to correct the problem. E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
If anyone has a remedy for this, i will open my Synaptic Package manager.
Well after messing with compiz Opacity I managed to make all panels and windows transparent. Only thing I see is desktop background and icons. Tried ctrl+although+f1 and running gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compiz Then a reboot. Same issue. Next ran metacity --replace I get: Windows manager error: Unable to open X display
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 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 trying to extract an RAR file which has my stuff on it from university, they use Windows Vista Ultimate so i thought i would be safe when saving my work to my flash drive. So i saved my work with the program winzip. when i got home i put in my flash drive and asked Kubuntu to extract only to find i don't have a RAR program to extract so i asked to install one via the Kpackage Manager and everything seemed fine so i asked it to extract again and said cannot extract unknown file. so i went through the terminal to install again and to make sure they were no bits of the install missing and i got this.
Is there any other way of extracting my work as i need to get my essay open and finnish it before monday. Also why is it saying that the package is missing? and what is the other source? Is there a way to decrypt this RAR file that vista has made? Also one more thing once ive managed to decrypt and extract my work what is the reccomended format to between vista and kubuntu so i wont get anymore issues?
