Ubuntu: Xubuntu 12.10 cannot archive folder on desktop



Question:

When I right click a folder on the desktop, there's no option to archive it. I actually have to open up the Thunar file manager, navigate to the desktop folder, and right click on the folder in order to archive it. Why can't I archive directly from the desktop?


Solution:1

thunar-archive-plugin

Do you have a default archive manager installed and set to correctly archive?

enter image description here

The standard MIME association mechanism is used to determine the preferred archive manager for the Create Archive…, Extract Here and Extract To… actions. However the plugin may not always be able to detect the appropriate archive manager for a certain task. Then the user will need to manually select the preferred archive manager from a list of possible applications.

See THIS PAGE for the tutorial.

There are some other plug-ins here.
