@uncle, yeah you're right. It's horribly outdated, and already been flagged since oktober...

@Rivalo, @rezad
I use Manjaro, which had a more recent version of p7zip than Arch, specifically 15.09-0.2 (as opposed to 9.38.1). This is probably why it works for me, but not for others. You could always manually install a more recent version of p7zip yourself (do so at your own risk, disclaimer, etc ...). For purposes of clarification, I don't think this is a problem with this specific package/PKGBUILD, rather a problem with the old Arch pz7ip package, and with the "peazip" program itself not being backwards compatible with older versions of p7zip/7z. I don't think there is anything I can put in my PKGBUILD that will fix this. If you know of a solution, feel free to make a suggestion.

Are you sure? It is currently using p7zip 9.38.1 and the -bb[0-3] command isn't listed. Executing '7z -bb1' would give the same unknown switch error.

This is true for creating as well as unpacking archives, so this current package is broken and dysfunctional.

@rezad I'm not really sure what would be causing that problem for you. "-bb1" is a valid flag for the "7z" command. If you do "7z --help" in the terminal, -bb is listed there, specifically:
"-bb[0-3] : set output log level"
I also tried installing the peazip-gtk2 package and creating a few 7z archives and it worked fine for me. Sounds like it might be a problem with the "p7zip" package on your machine. I don't know if this is related, but the "p7zip" package in the arch repo has been flagged out of date since "2015-10-21" If you continue to have problems, and you have a 64 bit machine, you could also try the "peazip-gtk2-portable" here in the AUR which uses the 7z binary bundled with peazip. This package links to the p7zip package installed separately on your machine, specifically:

when I use peazip to create a 7z archive it gives this error

Command Line Error:
Unknown switch:

The file structure and design of the peazip linux package seems to have changed drastically from 5.8.1 to 5.9.0. I don't have the time right now to re-write the PKGBUILD so for the time-being I have rolled the package back to 5.8.1. I will take a closer look at it in the next few days and see if I can figure it out.

cannot stat ‘arc/arc’

It is just me?

Updated checksums.

Angel_Caido commented on 2015-10-24 12:07

sha256sum and sha512sum values for the peazip.tgz file downloaded during the creation of this package were wrong and caused an error during install. I corrected them to the following:

Updated to 5.7.2, I created packages for Paq8o and lpaq, which was mostly just copying the old PKGBUILDs from aur 3, to fix the problem of these depends not existing :-) I also switched the lrzip depend back to zpaq. This is because, while lrzip can create a zpaq archive, it does so using LZMA algorithm. Also, someone else recently created a zpaq package on the new AUR and saved me the trouble :-)

uncle commented on 2015-08-31 23:23

I'm on it, will have an update soon.

agm28011997 commented on 2015-08-31 12:08

paq8o lpaq aren't in aur, the dependencies can't be fixed, how i can install peazip?

uncle commented on 2015-08-17 03:22

Updated to 5.7.1.

gabrielcossette commented on 2015-08-11 22:25

Please replace zpaq dependency by lrzip (zpaq has apparently been replaced by this package)
