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 some of the older GTK debs are configured for the KDE desktop. They include a desktop icon, but install it to the KDE directories. I fixed this by just linking the desktop file in the correct directory.
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/
Newer versions found on their download page seem to have fixed this problem.
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.
