Created a password protected zip file

Hi Friends,

I am running Fedora Workstation 25 (32 bit). I remember right clicking any folder in Fedora 23 and creating a password protected zip file, but now I am not able to do the same in Fedora 25. I am not sure as to what I am doing wrong or whether I need to install a specific package as root to accomplish the same, please guide me, thanks.

Attached images....

1.png shows a folder I want to compress

2. png gives me different file formats to choose from

3.png and 4.png are 2 images I have taken from the following URL to explain it you that - this what I used to encounter earlier whenever I wanted to compress and an entire folder (or file) with a password.

https://itsfoss.com/password-protect-zip-file/

thanks.

Re: Created a password protected zip file

Because archive creation is now integrated in nautilus, you need to open file-roller manually to use such "advanced" functions.

Create a new archive from that window (the option is hidden behind the global application menu on your Gnome Shell panel, or you can simply drag the file into it).

Work yourself past that dialogue and then d&d the stuff you want to zip. Come on, this is trivial stuff.

Re: Created a password protected zip file

If you are using Nautilus look for the package seahorse-nautilus and install it. Then try Alt-F2 and a popup box will appear, put the letter r and hit enter or reboot your machine and try to right click the file or directory and you will see encrypt

I think its already installed....

Code:
[root@localhost john]# rpm -qa|grep -i seah
seahorse-3.20.0-1.fc25.i686
seahorse-nautilus-3.11.92-6.fc24.i686
[root@localhost john]# 
[root@localhost john]# dnf install seahorse-nautilus-3.11.92-6.fc24.i686 
Last metadata expiration check: 0:02:54 ago on Fri Apr 21 21:06:30 2017.
Package seahorse-nautilus-3.11.92-6.fc24.i686 is already installed, skipping.
Dependencies resolved.
Nothing to do.
Complete!
[root@localhost john]#
No encrypt option after right-clicking....

Thanks....
