      Try installing 7zip, open your Ubuntu Software Center (Applications -> Ubuntu Software Center) and search for 7zip. Click on the install button and try to install GStyle again. Or type:
      sudo apt-get install p7zip
      in your terminal.

      I have no idea why GStyle is not or sometimes working. Maybe the application is not stable or … ? I really have no idea, sorry.

  • mario says:

    I got this working and looks nice. I have noticed something funny though, I have installed/uninstalled ubuntu 11.04 a few times. and everytime I install it something doesn’t seem to work the same as the previous time, maybe it’s just weird, but I thought I shared my experience.
