How to open .sit files in Ubuntu

My friend has given me some games to play them in my free time. Yesterday when I tried to open those, I found that they are of type .sit. So I tried to look for some software to open this kind of file on internet but didn't find anything. Can you help me open .sit files on my computer running Ubuntu?

Re: How to open .sit files in Ubuntu

A .sit file is something like .zip, a compressed file, which was used in older days and was supported by older computers. If you are having newer operating system installed, this file will not work. You may need some software which will be able to read this file and extract the desired file in order to get access.

StuffIT expander can extract the .site file and is the fastest. StuffIt is the ultimate compression and archive management solution. StuffIt gives you all the compression, expansion and archive management features you may ever need. StuffIt supports more than 25 compression formats, including .sit files.

To extract the file:

Quote:
tar -zxvf Stuffit*.tar.gz
copy stuff and unstuff in the bin/ directory to the /usr/bin/ directory

Finally to extract the .sit file:

Quote:
unstuff file.sit
