I'm using Gutsy 7.10 and Applications > Accessories > Archive Manager should do the trick.

Can't you just right click the file and select "Extract Here"...?

Either the zip file you found is broken (bad download?) or you can post the error it gives.


P.S. Barriehie: file-roller = Archive manager

If you are getting a permissions error, then you are probably trying to copy the file to a location outside of /home/your_username.

Try (in a terminal)
gksudo nautilus

If you're getting permission errors when moving the file, then it sounds like you're trying to move it to a place where it isn't a good idea to move it to. I would strongly advise against using "sudo" or "gksudo" (the commands you use to run programs as the administrator) willy-nilly.

Could you post where you intend to move the file to? Thanks.

I am planning to move the file from desktop to /var/www and another file to /tmp

Or you could just delete them.

You DO know that's what happens to everything in /tmp at reboot, right?
