7zip

Download

The first thing you will need to do is download the p7zip program.

Ubuntu users can do this by typing the following command:

sudo apt-get install p7zip

Extracting

To extract the file just type:

p7zip -d filename.7z

If you are using gnome you should also be able to right click on the file and select extract here.

right-click-7zip

7zip files have great compression ratios and often times offer higher compression than RAR, ZIP and other formats. Enjoy!
