GNU/Linux Elementary OS: replace default archiver

Typical scenario for what i want: downloading a .zip file, double click to “extract in place”. Done.

In Elementary OS however, the default archiver keeps bugging me with stupid dialogs like which directory to extract to, it’s not automatically closing after it has finished extracting the archive, … in short: it’s PITA.

After installing the B1 Free Archiver i was happy. – It really is more user friendly, by selecting a few “remember” checkboxes you will have double-click => extract in place working. Hooray!
