I have this .ZIP file that I downloaded to my computer (I'm using Ubuntu). Now I need to use the terminal to unzip it. How can I do that? Thanks so much.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Simply use:

unzip file.zip

If you want to extract it into a specific path:

unzip file.zip -d destination_folder

And if you don’t have unzip installed:

sudo apt-get install unzip

    Hi,

    Unzip command will not work until you Install unzip. To install unzip just run below command;

    $ sudo apt-get install unzip

    I hope it will work for you.

    Thanks & Regards
