Install dzip 2.9 on Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid

Dzip 2.9 which was release quite a while ago, is a program for file compression. It’s advantage over more popular compression software is in the size of the program, easily fitting on a floppy disk. It performs just as good as the competition, or slightly better, on average, both in compression ratio and time.


Dzip has full integration with the Windows shell. You can drag files into the Dzip window to add them to a .dz file. You can drag files out of the Dzip window wherever you would like them extracted. You can drag files on top of an icon for a .dz file to add them. Unlike WinZip, Dzip will not ‘double copy’ files when you drag them out by extracting to the temp directory and them copying them to the destination, the files go straight to the destination.
