Do you have file-roller installed?

I have Archive Manager but i can't create an archive from a simple file. Only .zip files are listed when i click on "+"

If you run:

sudo apt-get install rar unrar p7zip* unp

Then close the file manager and rerun, does it help?

Richard Gagne (gagne-richard) said : #4

Yes now i can add any files with "+".
File manager still not offer to use a password to create a zip file.
Do you have an idea ?

Not sure. I always use the command line.

Thank you for your answers. I will use "Archive Manager".
