Re: opening *.xz files

I'm no expert but i would say this depends on the file which is compressed.
First of all you need xz-utils installed.

I can't open an xz compressed dd image in mc BUT
I can open an xz compressed text file in mc.

In /etc/mc or in ~/.config/mc is an mc.ext file which define the file
extensions handled by mc.

I hope that would help you.

Best regards,

when I open mc, and navigate to a folder where there are compressed
files (for example, in *.tar.gz format), pressing enter on these
compressed files opens them temporarily.
If I do it on *.xz files, then garbage is displayed.

Any ideas ?
