    Editing archive?


    So i had to edit an archive .....
    Not knowing what i was doing i extracted it...
    So here i sit with an uncompressed edited archive that needs to be compressed.....
    I've tried everything in Ark in KDE ...
    it's gotta be something so simple.
    It is the driver for my Keyboard which still works (i dont why, but it dose)...
    If u can only tell me how to do this in command line then tell me and i'll do it there.
