Hi again. I hope someone can tall me how to get unzip to work. I have dl a kompressed file from here "" and extracted it to my home directory so I now have a directory called something like unzip-5.5. But (offcourse) the command unzip dosent work jet. But what should I do next?

I have transfered a zip file from a windows pc and that is why I need the unzip function.

I believe unzip comes with dsl in the first place. Try opening an Xterminal and typing


replacing "" with your file's name.

unzip with no file or options prints out a nice little summary of the command line swtches.
