When I open the minecraft.jar file with p7zip on Linux, I can't delete the META-INF folder.

This is the error:

Error: /home/davide/.minecraft/bin/minecraft.jar is not supported archive

System error: Operation not permitted  

What can I do?

p7zip couldn't open it for me even after renaming it to zip (said "unknown suffix").

My system's default archive manager is file-roller, it opened the .jar witout any problems an I could delete the folder.

unzip could also handle it, but you need to recompress manually after.
