I definitely used to be able to select a set of files in File Manager and right-click >> "Compress" and pick the format (e.g. .tar.gz). I think I used to be able to right-click a compressed file and choose "Extract Here" or something like that but I'm not sure. Anyway, those options are now missing.
I think they disappeared when I uninstalled zip and unzip as per the suggestions here: https://wiki.debian.org/ReduceDebian
Since then I have reinstalled zip and unzip, but the menu options in File Manager have not returned. Any idea what I can do to be able to Compress, Extract from File Manager?
