Thunar file manager does not show archiving options in the menu upon right click

Thunar File Manager on Xubuntu did not display the options of Extract or Extract Here… when right clicking on an archive file.

This was because the thunar-archive-plugin is not installed. To get the option to extract archive files, open a terminal window and install the thunar-archive-plugin as below:

$ sudo apt-get install thunar-archive-plugin <enter>
