There is also now a binary intel RPM, it can be found at

Some changes in 0.0.7:

  • added Preference screen
  • GUI improvements
  • configure script now included
  • -f no longer need when specifying a file to open at the command
  • several bugfixes, including removing all fixed length

Check the ChangeLog for a complete list of changes.

gxTar is a Gnome/Gtk front-end to common archive utilities under
unix. The goal is to make it the winzip of the unix world.
Currently zip, gzip, tar, bzip2, and arj are supported. Current
functionality includes the ability to open and create archives, and
to add, delete, extract, and view files. Drag & drop support is
coming soon (really).

The current release has been tested on Linux with the latest CVS
release of Gnome (though the latest RPMs should work). It is no
longer possible to compile a GTK+ version.. I finally got tired of
re-implementing all of the functions that gnome provided. Perhaps I
will bring the gtk version uptodate again someday, but not now.

Suggestions, bug reports, etc are always wanted at
