Ubuntu – Extract Archive on Open or Double Click

In Mac OS X, when you double-click a ZIP file its contents are extracted. I wanted similar functionality in Ubuntu. You can use file-roller utility to extract files to the destination folder name as zip file name.

You can set above as a default action, by viewing the property of any zip file in Nautilus and selecting file-roller with -h as command line option.

    Thanks for the tip. Loved getting it to work exactly like Mac OS X on my machine.
