[SOLVED] How to add file (copy-paste) to an archive

Postby erie88 on Fri Feb 01, 2013 11:18 am

My Linux version is Maya 13 CINNAMON. I really newbie with Linux. I have a "stud.zip" file. I want to add a folder "etc" to the "stud.zip". So I open the zip and tried to copy paste the folder with "CTRL + C" and "CTRL + V". What i don't understand it then asked me for destination folder : with "/" and "paste" button. My question is "What should i fill in the destination form to make the copying works?"

I only got this http://library.gnome.org/users/file-rol ... ts.html.en keyboard shortcuts but didn't explain anything about archive manager asking destination folder.
Thank you.

Don't do it that way. Open stud.zip with the archive manager and click add files. All it will ask you is what files you want to add.

Oh okay. Thanks. I didn't know that copying file or folder to zip using ctrl+c ctrl+v shortcut is not allowed. I guess this is solved then. I previously wanted to ask if it is possible to add more than one folder but Linux Mint 14 already have the answer.
