IP trouble...Unzipping trouble

Asked by Al3XiS on 2007-09-20

I'm living outside the US right now but still want access to sites like Hulu and Netflix. I'm trying to use this program called "NotmyIP," but the unzip isn't happening:

"End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
  a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
  latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
  the last disk(s) of this archive.
zipinfo: cannot find zipfile directory in one of /home/joseph/Downloads/notmyip.exe"

Any help, either on the unzip, or a better way to change my location? (Karmic Koala)

Thanks for your question, you can post the error you recive. Thanks


If you have a .zip file on your Desktop, for example, double-click it to open it.

If you would like to unzip using the command line, open a terminal and install unzip like this:

sudo apt-get install unzip

Give your password and that should install the unzip utility.

To use it, navigate to where the .zip file is, then type:

unzip <filename>

Where <filename> is your .zip archive.
