I am using Linux Mint 14 Nadia . Earlier whenever I right clicked any folder I got options like Extract it, Compress etc. But now I am not getting them . Probably I changed/deleted some of the utilities . I have nautilus installed on my system . Is there any way I can get those 2 features back in the options list when I right click any folder ?

From the Linux Mint Forum I found the following post, Extract, Compress in right-click menu. According to that post you have 2 options:

  • Use Caja instead of Nautilus (I believe Caja is just a fork of Nautilus)
  • Install File Roller + xarchiver

According to that post these are the steps required to install File Roller:

  1. open synaptic manager
  2. search for file roller
  3. select file roller to install
  4. search for xarchiver
  5. select xarchiver to install
  6. restart

Didn't work for me on XFCE Linux Mint 13 with Caja. But what did work finally was:

$ sudo apt-get install engrampa

then:

$ pkill caja

Caja then restarted itself and afterwards within the last entries there is a "compress" option.
