Can you provide a version that supports the official GUI when wxgtk is installed?

Asked by Gao Shichao on 2012-04-24

A friendly and familiar GUI will be helpful for newbies and who don't like memorizing commands. And since the upstream already supports it well. So I hope this package in Debian and Ubuntu should add GUI support and wxgtk as recommended dependency just like in archlinux. I don' t know how I can let this happen?

I suggest you install Ubuntu, it is a nice friendly GUI for new users. I don't see an issue here. Can you rephrase the question.

If your users are new then Arch isn't great. It doesn't hold your hand so much as Ubuntu does.

I think you misunderstood my question. I ask the p7zip packager to package p7zip with GUI support as in the upstream. Since you can download the p7zip source package, you can see in it a folder "GUI" which is the official upstream GUI support. The GUI in p7zip provides several useful functions that neither File-roller nor Ark frontend support. So I asked if the p7zip packager can provide the upstream GUI like packagers in Archlinux did.

If you install p7zip it will be extractable via fileroller, you don't need a separate GUI

The functionality will simply need to be added to file roller. I suggest you report a bug wit file roller.
