Last week I got my hands on an »encrypted« .zip file, the built-in zip command wouldn’t eat:

{% highlight bash %} $ unzip Archive: skipping: vpn/my-config-file.ovpn need PK compat. v5.1 (can do v4.5) {% endhighlight %}

The solution is pretty simple: Just install 7-Zip. It’s free software and should come with every decent linux distribution.

{% highlight bash %} $ 7z x

Processing archive:

Extracting vpn Extracting vpn/my-config-file.ovpn Enter password (will not be echoed) : {% endhighlight %}
