How To Install B1 Archiver On Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Debian And Their Derivative Systems

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, B1 Archiver is a cross-platform software for compressing and archiving files, having support for the most popular archive formats (including password protected archives) and features to split and join archives. With a simple and intuitive GUI.

In this article I will show you how to install B1 Archiver on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pinguy OS, Elementary OS, Debian and other Debian and Ubuntu derivative systems.

Because it is not available via any repository or PPA, we have to download the B1 Archiver deb package and install it via the command-line. I prefer gdebi over dpkg due to the fact that it also handles dependencies.

Follow the instructions for your system exactly, in order to get a successful installation.

How to install B1 Archiver on 32 bit Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Debian and derivative systems:
