    Hey, I downloaded a theme using mobile safari named "Ultimate.zip". It went into my downloads folder. I have unzip and unrar in ~/bin. I have tried using guides to unzipping files in terminal.app but whenever I enter "unzip Ultimate.zip" it says command not found: unzip. Please help : (

    Bump, It really would mean a lot. I have searched throughout the forum. I am a high member of other forums and I know how agitating it is when one does not search. I have searched and what I have found I have tried. It just doesn't work.

    Maybe you could use "/bin unzip ZIPFILE"?

    I tried this and it said "permission denied : /bin"

    /var/root/bin/unzip

    Your ~/bin is not included in the search path. You must input the full path to your command.
    I did this a lot times. It really works.

    Obviously no one is replying. But is there any point where the Ultimate Leopard 1.1 will be add to the installer ? Because this would be an immediate fix to my problem.

    okay here is how to unzip a file in terminal.

    Make sure unzip is in /var/root/bin
    place the file u want to unzip wherever (/var/root/Downloads is where mine go)
    type
    cd /var/root/(whatever folder your file is in)
    ex.
    cd /var/root/Downloads
    press enter
    THEN after you press return type
    /var/root/bin/unzip (name of file including .zip)
    ex.
    /var/root/bin/unzip Ultimate.zip
    press return and it should take off
    if a password is needed it will ask for one
    the .rar files I have tried have not worked (they began to decompress but it says "abort" and doesnt finish.
