    Read the man-page to see what those options mean
    Code:
    man file-roller
    I thought about doing it with file-roller, but i found some posts that said it doesn't accept cli input, so i went for tar and the script. I will read the man pages and possibly come to the end of this as soon as i can get to my jaunty box

    Yes! I though I had the path wrong but I clicked the browse button and selected the file. So the file is there!

    Tried geirha command and it worked! Thanks any way!

    Can you just help me out getting the selected script to open by default when I double click?

    if the command worked, you just have to tick it in right click > properties > open with.
