listing the files contained in the archive does not solve the problem. I want to unzip them. And that has not worked in any of the examined cases...
I understand. It was a hint that it might be possible because of the positive result from winzip. And if you installed arj in wine it might work.
But, I installed arj, patool, peazip, and engrampa in my tumbleweed. And then I went to dolphin and right clicked and let it guide me to which of them to open the self-extracting archive that I've got. It choose engrampa. Engrampa opened the archive and when I clicked extract it extracted the archive. I also tested peazip and same there. Now, I don't know if it's your archive or something but they can surely extract self-extracing ms-dos/windows archive.
This is my archive:
$ file arj284.exe arj284.exe: MS-DOS executable, MZ for MS-DOS, ARJ self-extracting archive
