Ark is an archiving tool for the KDE Software Compilation, included into kdeutils package.


  • Ark does not intrinsically understand any archive format, but instead acts as a frontend to command-line archivers. It can work with many backends, including 7z, tar, rar, zip, gzip, bzip2, lha, zoo, and ar.
  • Ark can be integrated into Konqueror, through KParts technology, if the appropriate plugin from kdeaddons package is installed. After installing it, files can be added or extracted in/from the archives using Konqueror's context menus.
  • Support for editing files in archive with external programs. Files can also be deleted from the archive.
  • Archives creation with drag and drop.
