I just needed 7Zip on my Fedora 22 machine, and all I had to do is: sudo dnf install p7zip (version 15.09, release 9.fc22)

7zip, or let's say the Linux port (p7zip) is part of the official repository - no need to have rpmfusion enabled.

After installing it, Gnome's Archiver (File Roller) also understands how to deal with .7z files. No need to install the p7zip-plugins

For cli use: 7za x <file.7z> or 7za e <file.7z>

Use p7zip:

yum install p7zip

You need root privileges to run this install command

Hmm, that's odd. The file is listed here:

You can download a suitable RPM for your system from there if necessary.

I had none problem to install 7zip using terminal, but then looks like it isn't there. right click on a .rar file and no 7zip nowhere. Do I have to reboot fedora?

Hi I'm running Fedora 22 I needed 7z So I installed

dnf install p7zip

To check the binary name I ran

rpm -ql p7zip | grep bin

Which gave me


to extract a 7z file I used the following command

7za e <file>

Hope this helps
