Hi,

How do you unpack tar.bz2 files?

Thanks,
Frank

A low level approach would be to use command:
Code: [Select]
tar xvf filename.tar.bz2

Another command line utility available on VL is "mc". Use the keyboard arrows to move the highlight to the file and press Enter. From there you can see and copy the contents of the archive.

Above that, it would depend on your file manager. Try right-clicking the file and see what options are available.
