@ugjdgdto, interesting. I shared a full package build just in case
Waiting for Arch repo maintainers to pick up 7-zip.

For Ark, there is a patch for using Igor's 7-Zip. Looks like it will fix the version issue.

I did some additional research. Even apps that use only 7z binary may fail.
For example: Ark uses only 7z via CLI and still fail with 7-zip version. Can't tell why.

@ugjdgdto, I'm not the package maintainer anyway. I simply stated the fact.
Maybe there is some sense to create separate full-featured 7-zip package to truly replace p7zip.

The prebuilt binary by Igor Pavlov does not have, but if you manually build from source, you can cd CPP/7zip/Bundles/Format7zF and build

(Replace Format7zF with Alone for 7za and Alone7z for 7zr)

However, according to the developer, it is not really tested so there may be bugs.

@Hanabishi: I removed p7zip conflicts. thanks

This package can't provide p7zip replacement. Simply symlinking 7z it is not enough. Most depending apps (like GUI archivers) just don't work or crash.
Because look in p7zip package, it has 2 additional binaries: 7za and 7zr. And also it has a library, which 7-zip package just doesn't provide in any way.

@crondrift: there is no version 21.05 release for linux. I update this package as soon as it is available.

I changed package name to match upstream name and added a symlink for 7z, so this package can replace p7zip.

Makes me wonder if there's a package to replace p7zip with a symlink to this, for packages like lutris which explicitly depend on p7zip.
