I assume you are talking about some GUI tool that is a wrapper around the real unarchiver (which is tar).

Python will only support .xz if support for it was available when Python was built.

> Where I can modify how pyqtdeploy-sysroot extracts tar files?, seems like a common error when a tar file have multiple folders inside, which have no sense, as Qt have one single folder with a lot of folders and files inside

As I said, if you want to change the way Qt is built the you need to provide your own plugin that does what you want...


Obviously the easiest thing to do is to take the one included with pyqtdeploy and modify it.
