Thanks for the answer. All I was trying to do was update the file within
the archive. I wound up deleting the original archive and re-creating it
with Archive Manager, which works, but it would be nice if I could
simply re-add the file to the archive like I've been doing with archives
that end in .zip. With those I just click the Add button in Archive
Manager and select the updated file, and it updates the file within the
It seems like shameful complication to have to re-create a .gz archive
every time I want to update the file within it. Is there a smarter
Archive Manager available for Ubuntu that can handle updating a file
without re-creating the archive?
