I downloaded a zip pdf file and tried to unzip it onto the desktop, and got an error message (the one in the pic bellow just with "Desktop" instead of "Documents") and then i tried it in my documents ... same error message.


Is it the file thats bust of my MBP?!? Im a total newbie, and this is really scaring me. :(

Im using stuffit to expand it.
From the command-line unzip futility, I get:

Code:
$ unzip -v Kilimanjaro.zip
Archive:  Kilimanjaro.zip
  End-of-central-directory signature not found.  Either this file is not
  a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive.  In the
  latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
  the last disk(s) of this archive.
unzip:  cannot find zipfile directory in one of Kilimanjaro.zip or
        Kilimanjaro.zip.zip, and cannot find Kilimanjaro.zip.ZIP, period.
Looking at the innards of the file, it is supposed to be a ZIP, it's simply damaged or incomplete.

God, I always hate that message. Especially when I've already closed out of the tab that I started the download from.
