    For the .zip extensions, I typically just use unzip and go from there.

    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help. Please keep it on the public boards.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    You also might want to install p7zip (7z) package in your system, if it isn't already. According to the man page, is supports the ZIP, CAB, ARJ, GZIP, BZIP2, TAR, CPIO, RPM and DEB file formats. That's what I usually use to unzip .zip archives.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
