I have downloaded a tar.xz file, extracted the .tar file but find I have no way to convert it to a .xzm file!!

Its a Zoom file to run a Zoom Client on Linux.

Suggestions?

:hmmm: Extract the .tar files to a directory then dir2xzm it to a xzm file. I'll let you know if that works.

a bit more than that:
#mkdir -p zoom/{opt,usr/{bin,share/applications}}
put the extracted zoom folder in zoom/opt
create a link(zoom) in zoom/bin to /opt/zoom/zoom.sh (ln -s /opt/zoom/zoom.sh zoom/usr/bin/zoom)
create a zoom.desktop(blah, blah, Exec=zoom, etc) and put it in zoom/usr/share/applications
then dir2xzm zoom
you may also need: xcb-util-image and xcb-util-keysyms (running zoom.sh in a terminal will tell you about missing libs)

:o Thank you ncmp. At the time that was posted I had no interest in Zoom but now...

I tried the Menu > Admin > bundles approach and both files ended with Checksum Mismatch windows. :( And neither was named zoom.

Added in 1 hour 38 minutes 20 seconds:
Just noticed, the link you gave is for the 5.0 test system. I use the 4.0 system. You think the test system's Zoom would work in 4.0? Do you have the script you used to create the test system's module? Could I borrow it to try it with the 4.0 system?

Added in 10 minutes 29 seconds:
Maybe...

I downloaded the test system's module and activated it.

Code: Select all

But I have a Zoom GUI window so it may work. :o We may get to see the family at Easter. :Yahoo!:

Was under the impression that tar.xz was txz, in which case one could rename it to txz and use txz2xzm.

generally not, since while txz is technically a tar.xz, it's a slackware package, which is a very particular tar.xz archive in it's structure(fakeroot + install dir).
whereas random tar.xz archives from the web, even though they may contain precompiled binaries, most likely lack the required file structure to convert to a module in the same way a slackware package does.
best approach is to extract them and see what's there.. (as you would with tar.gz, tar.bz2, zip, etc...)
