PeaZip is a free extractor and archiving application using either GTK or Qt interfaces and support for over 150 archiving formats out there, including TAR, RAR, ZIP, ACE, ARJ, DMG, ISO, CAB, LHA and 7-Zip.


PeaZip comes with a compact, well-organized and friendly interface. It allows to browse and search archives, display files and folders in a detailed list or using thumbnail previews, create new compressed files and extract from many formats. Converting between formats on the fly is also possible.

Install PeaZip 5.3.0 in Ubuntu

The DEB package for the GTK interface needs a package which is not available in the Trusty repositories, libgmp3c2, however the package using the Qt interface works.

To install PeaZip Qt, download the DEB package from here (direct link here), and either double-click it or type in a terminal:

sudo dpkg -i peazip_5.3.0.LINUX.Qt-2_i386.deb

There is also a standalone package, which can be downloaded from the GTK-Apps.org page, here.
