I mean something like "Extract Here" and "Compress..." menus on right-click.


Actually, Nemo can be integrated with the default archive manager shipped with Unity. Webup8 provides Nemo with a series of extensions that integrates it tightly with Unity. The steps are:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/nemo
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nemo nemo-fileroller
sudo apt-get install nemo-compare nemo-dropbox nemo-media-columns nemo-pastebin nemo-seahorse nemo-share nemo-emblems nemo-image-converter nemo-rabbitvcs

After this, among many other improvements, you should have the "Extract Here" and "Compress..." options in the context menu.
