When selecting Compress... from the right click context menu in Nautilus I am able to quickly compress files to .gz format.
However by default Nautilus does not use maximum compression. Can I make Nautilus to use maximum compression like
Using gconftool or gconf-editor to set the compression_level for File Roller to
maximum seems right but infortunately has not the desired effect and will not lead to maximum compressed files. As this is the expected way of how to set compression levels a bug report has been filed upstream.
Any ideas for a workaround are welcome.
