I am looking for a (preferably) graphical archive manager that can be configured to use
/tmp as a scratch area for decompressing.
My setup is as follows: I have my local workstation with
/home mounted from a NFS partition which works well in general and I also have a good chunk of RAM so I have
/tmp setup as a RAM disk. I also need to work with large (100-300MB)
zip archives on a regular basis. In my testing, I've found that decompressing to
/tmp and then moving the files into the NFS mount is orders of magnitude faster, however doing this currently requires me to drop out to a shell and do it all manually so I rarely bother unless I need something done quickly.
So, does anyone have any thoughts on applications that I could use to hopefully automate this a little more? I could easily write a console level wrapper to do the job, but I'm hoping for something that I can use from/with nautilus.
