I am switching from Windows to Ubuntu. I need to open and view a file stored in an old 7z archive file. To do this, I installed P7zip - Desktop (P7ZIP 16.02 [64-bit]) to my Ubuntu Desktop notebook. I opened my 7z archive file with P7ZIP and selected a text file in the archive. Normally, by pressing F3 or F4, I should be able to view or edit this text file. However, P7ZIP extracts the selected file into a temporary location, but does not start any external viewer or editor. (The file's location seems to be a directory something like /tmp/snap.1000_p7zip-desktop_z4QNCd/tmp/xxxxxxxxxx/ which changes with every menu item invocation.). The error that it throws to the console is something like this:
DEBUG : ExecuteFileCommand(id=544)-2 execvp(vi) failed with error 13!
The Linux version of P7ZIP does not contain any Tools | Options... dialog box, so I am not able to configure P7ZIP and define another viewer and editor.
What am I missing?
