I am getting this message from Archive Manager when trying to open a text file:

Could not open “users.js”
Archive type not supported.

I've tried different archive managers but not one works!

List of application I have in my machine to extract:

  1. Archive Mounter
  2. Xarchier (just downloaded but not working)
  3. Archive Manager (default one)

This is the output of file users.js -> users.js: ASCII text, with CRLF line terminators

  • @Melebius I just edit my question please remove that duplicate link thanks melebius – Mohsin Jun 26 '18 at 7:36
  • Thank you for the edit. Generally a .js file should be a text file containing JavaScript code rather than an archive. Could you add the output of the command file users.js to your question? (You’ll need to fill its correct path; you can also drag the file into the terminal window to fill the path automatically.) You could also open it in a text editor (like Gedit) and check if it is readable. – Melebius Jun 26 '18 at 7:54
  • @Melebius I just edit my question and paste the output of user.js file. It is readable in for text-edit software like sublime – Mohsin Jun 26 '18 at 9:05
