So what I wanted to do is compress files (using 7zip) and split a 600MB folder into 199MB parts, but sadly when I tried to do this task with archive manager it gave me an error, but I know that if I use terminal it will work.
You may at times need to create a series of small compress files for a big file ( for instance, when you want to upload a very big file to Mediafire or Rapidshare, you will need to split this file into small parts). In Windows, the most popular tool for this task is WinRar to create rar files. In Linux, you can use the rar utility to compress a big file then split in into small parts as well.
i installed ubuntu 11.10 after spending some time with Arch and Gentoo (DIY distro sounds good but theres always something to overlook/forget)
i have BTRFS / and /home partitions (ext2 /boot) and just added compress=lzo to my fstab to see if there was a noticeable performance gain (after a few updates all the files should have been modified and therefor compressed right?)
I've written an article about some tricks you can do with ffmpeg, in today's article, I will show you another trick - compressing avi and mp4 video files with a simple command with a only a small loss in video quality.
If you dont have ffmpeg already installed, you can run this command to install it in Ubuntu and other Debian-based distros:
sudo apt-get install libav-tools
Does anyone have a script to use on Automator service to compress a file, files, a folder or folders when clicking the right mouse button? It would be an alternative option for the Compress option, that compress to zip.
When I compress files, I expect two basic options. None of which are present in Nautilus's "compress..." context menu action, and instead there is only option to set password. So thought to ask for some solution if someone has already solved this nicely.
