I wanted to extract from .zip file, some files, and I pressed right click on file, as per usual, "Extract Here" and it doesn't do anything, I've tried again and again.. nothing.

In terminal:

file-roller: error while loading shared libraries: libmagic.so.1:
 cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

I remember that I removed that file "libmagic.so.1" by mistake, and I didn't knew what will happen, now I know. The problem is how I recover that file?

P.S.: Sorry for my bad english.

Edit: I found the answer, I've tried to run this code:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall libmagic1

And it works! Thanks! You can close this topic.

  • Open panthon-files in the folder of your zip, open a terminal and try: file-roller -h yourfile.zip, where yourfile.zip is the file you want to unzip. Edit your question and paste the output – bitseater Feb 19 '16 at 20:23
  • file-roller: error while loading shared libraries: libmagic.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory. Yeah, I removed that file "libmagic.so.1", I've made a mistake... – yierstem Feb 19 '16 at 21:05

Try from terminal :

sudo apt-get install libmagic-dev
  • The same error: file-roller: error while loading shared libraries: libmagic.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory – yierstem Feb 20 '16 at 8:14
