    Error extracting file from zip

    I'm trying to extract a file from a zipped archive, and receive an error message saying "caution: filename not matched:".

    I suspect the route cause of this is that the original filename contained accented characters (which now show as question marks in the zipped filename). I've tried renaming the file in the archive, but get the same error.

    Any suggestions for getting the little blighter extracted successfully would be much appreciated! I'm using 9.10 (Karmic).

    What is the full name of the file with the extension (e.g. ebook.tar.gz or ebook.zip, etc)?

    The zip file is

    Old files.zip

    and the problematic file it contains is

    D?j? vu.doc

    which should be Deja vu.doc, and which I suspect contained an accented e and a in the original title.

    The error I get is:

    caution: filename not matched: D\?j\? vu.doc

    Try this Fix..
    Go to the directory containing the zip files and enter this command via terminal:

    Code:
    unzip \*.zip
    enjoy...
