7zip ubuntu

What is a 7z file? 7zip is the most common compress and uncompress program. 7zip can compress and uncompress in the following format: 7z, ZIP, GZIP, BZIP2, XZ and TAR and support uncompress for the following format APM, ARJ, CAB, CHM, CPIO, CramFS, DEB, DMG, FAT, HFS, ISO, LZH, LZMA, LZMA2, MBR, MSI, MSLZ, NSIS, NTFS, RPM, SquashFS, UDF, VHD, WIM, XAR and Z.

To install 7zip program in Ubuntu follow few steps below:

The first, let open Terminal app and run following command below:

sudo apt-get install p7zip-full

or

sudo apt-get install p7zip

or

sudo apt-get install p7zip-rar

install 7zip on ubuntu

Difference between p7zip-full and p7zip, p7zip-rar

p7zip includes 7zr (a very little 7zip archive tool) that are able to handle its original 7z type only.

p7zip-full includes 7z that are able to support 7z, LZMA2, XZ, ZIP, CAB, GZIP, BZIP2, ARJ, TAR, CPIO, RPM, ISO and DEB.

p7zip-rar:includes a plugin for uncompress RAR files.

It is suggested to choose the p7zip-full package, so this is the full 7zip package that supports a lot of archive formats. Moreover, if you wish to extract RAR files, you also have to set up a p7zip-rar package. The cause for getting a different plugin package is as RAR is an exclusive format.
