How to extract lzh archives in Ubuntu

It's rare to find an archive format Archive Manager can't open, but it happens. Recently, I came across an lzh archive that can't be extracted.

To add the feature to Archive Manager, just install lha from terminal.

~$ sudo apt-get install lha

Once installed, you can open lzh archives with Archive Manager the same way you open zip archives. Just right click on the file and select Extract Here to extract the contents.
