Until a recent reinstall of 16.04 I was able to extract encrypted .enz files (made with Cobian in Windows) with the Ubuntu archive manager. Now, following the reinstall, archive manager chokes on the encryption password with the message, "An error occurred while extracting files." I know the password I am using is correct because it works on the same file opened with Cobian Decompressor in Windows. Any suggestions about what might get me back to being able to open these files in Ubuntu (that does not involve wine)?

    archive manager itself does NOT uncompress files. It uses the actual tool needed to extract ENZ. Install that and archive manager adds it to its accepted extration tools. What was the tool you used? ;-) I have not found one online :(

  • Rinzwind, I don't know what tool I used. I would simply right-click on the ENZ file, choose "Extract here," enter the password when asked, and the extracted file would appear next to the brown box icon of the ENZ file. I, too, have been scouring the 'net without success, looking for anything about Linux and ENZ file decompression.

FIXED! The answer is the full 7zip.

sudo apt install p7zip-full

did the trick. See [https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/blogs/6e6f6d1b-95c3-46df-8a26-b7efd8ee4b57/entry/how_to_use_7zip_on_linux_command_line144?lang=en] is where I got the idea to try this.

  • Credit where credit's due department: It was Rinzwind's informative comment that prompted me to search for "the actual tool needed to extract ENZ." Thanks for that, Rinzwind.
