I'm using Xubuntu 14.04 and when I try to open a .zip file with the default Archive Manager it turns into a .zip.7z and then it doesn't open.

How did you open .zip files? –  Avinash Raj Jun 26 '14 at 17:37
You should use unzip filename.zip to open the zip files! –  Null pointer Jun 26 '14 at 17:39
With the default Archive Manager –  KalebNoobMaster Jun 26 '14 at 17:43
My guess is that the .zip was origionally made with 7z . At any rate, see the dup link I gave. –  bodhi.zazen Jun 26 '14 at 18:17
