    Use unzip command:

    Code:
    unzip file.zip
    many time unzip is not installed by default so install it before using it, use rpm or apt-get/yum command to install unzip

    Use this simple archiver - B1 archiver. It's a nice one - allows opening of different archive formats!

    I have installed Linux 32bit in my PC and I have an oracle 32bit in a format of the zip file. But when I install it then an error has occurred there and it cannot execute the file. Why it happened ? What should I do for it?

    Yeah that's right I used this command but the problem is that it is not opening some zip files. Is there any other alternative available to this problem.


    Need you help

    gunzip for .gz files not a zip
