    How do I unzip an encrypted 7z archive with archive manager?

    I have an encrypted 7z archive and when I open it with archive manager it says "an error occured while loading the archive". (the file is not corrupt)
    Is there something I need to install to get it to work?
    What about RAR?

    (using Mint 14)

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install p7zip{,-full}
    After that the archive manager will be able to handle 7z archives.

    I made a small encrypted archive with two text files from the current directory with the following command
    Code:
    7z a -mhe=on -p test.7z .
    (the password is prompted)

    It worked without issues to open it with the default archive program in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    Code:
    file-roller test.7z
    Of course it wants the password, but after that I can view the files. (Use your appropriate file name)

    I think either your 7z file is corrupt, or your file-roller does not have 7z tools. Install it with the following command and try again
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install p7zip-full
    If still no go with file-roller, try
    Code:
    7z e test.7z
    (Use your appropriate file name)
