I want to install PeaZip for a specific purpose, which I can't fulfill with any other archive manager. I downloaded and installed it by using both dpkg -i & Gdebi. Now I can't start it, because I can't find the launcher. Please provide a solution.

For some reason even the GTK deb is configured for the KDE desktop. It includes a desktop icon, but installs it to KDE directories. I fixed this by just linking the desktop file in the correct directory.

Just run sudo ln -s /opt/kde3/share/applications/kde/PeaZip.desktop /usr/share/applications/.

Alternatively, you could just copy the shortcut with sudo cp /opt/kde3/share/applications/kde/PeaZip.desktop /usr/share/applications/

You can download an Ubuntu package for PeaZip from their website:

You'll probably want one of the GTK2 versions unless you're using KDE.
