i use ark which uses p7zip as a backend so install both if you havent already. you can also use p7zip from cli if you so choose.
you may or may not have to enable testing repos.

On the command line
Code: [Select]
7za e your_compressed_file.7z
Of course, you want to make sure you have p7zip installed and the 7za command is available
