I like 7-Zip http://p7zip.sourceforge.net/
(In my previous version of this How-To I used 7-Zip for Windows from http://www.7-zip.org/ ) to open the downloaded archive, but now you can do it all from within mobaxterm.
To get 7-Zip working in MobaXterm I downloaded the 7-Zip package from a cygwin mirror... (find your closest one at https://cygwin.com/mirrors.html )
You can find the current version with this:
wget -qO- http://mirrors.kernel.org/sourceware/cygwin/x86/release/p7zip/ | sed -e 's/<[^>]*>//g'Then download the version you want. e.g.:
wget -N http://mirrors.kernel.org/sourceware/cygwin/x86/release/p7zip/p7zip-15.14-2.tar.xzYou should now have this file in your current directory:
-rwxrwx--- 1 Administ UsersGrp 1039440 Apr 5 05:12 p7zip-15.14-2.tar.xzYou can unpack the tar.xz with gnu tar:
tar xvf p7zip-15.14-2.tar.xzYou can then create the package using the p7zip from the unpacked tar file:
usr/lib/p7zip/7za.exe a p7zip.mxt3 -tZIP usrFinally move the file you have created to C:\Program Files (x86)\Mobatek\MobaXterm Personal Edition
You will probably need to do that step from outside MobaXterm otherwise you won't have permission to write to the directory.
Then restart MobaXterm.
$ open $PWD
from the command line in your home directory.
If you have trouble with the step creating the mxt3 file you can do it via Windows too:
Originally I opened the directory it created ( p7zip-15.09-1 ) in Windows Explorer and right clicked on the usr directory and chose 7-Zip -> Add to "usr.zip" (NB: Choose usr.zip, not usr.7z here)
This created a .zip file containing the usr directory.
I then renamed usr.zip to p7zip.mxt3
