Thread: Ark Troubles

    Default Ark Troubles

    Freshly Installed Opensuse 11 KDE 4 installation. Whenever I try to extract an archive with Ark (to anywhere) it either locks up or informs me that it "could not write to the destination file" Very frustrating... Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    make sure you have permission to write to the directory.

    Hi,

    Yeah I have had the same problem after installing 11.0 with KDE 4. I tried to get the latest version of ARK thru Yast and KDE updated to V4.1. Which was all well and good but ARK still did not work.

    I checked permissions and they were all good.
    I fixed it by re-installing and going back to KDE 3.5.9 - Nothing like stability!.

    If anyone can fix this I will think of trying 4 again. But all my backups are in Zip files and I need ARK to work.

    Try installing PeaZip. I ran into this issue and I could unzip my files without a problem once I installed PeaZip. I ran into this issue with KDE4 on Kubuntu 8.04 as well so I don't think it's a Suse 11 only issue.

    I am having trouble with Ark as well. It either refuses to extract all of the contents or it extracts everything but ignores all the folder paths, resulting in all the files being in one directory. It's really annoying. I am forced to use WinRAR under wine, but I will try PeaZip.

    I too use winrar at the moment. Works fine. Never heard of peazip.
    The packages will eventually come through for kde4, just be patient.

    Ark is not working for me either. No matter what I extract I get:

    "The extraction operation failed." Followed by a list of files and their permissions. This is extracting to my user directory and affects every file I try to extract.

    I guess I'll stick with tar for now.

    I'm having the exact same troubles. I've noticed that the permission errors only occur for .rar/.zip (so far). .tar.gz works fine, haven't yet tried .bz2. I'm guessing it pops up the permission error when Ark doesn't know how to decompress those file formats. I've installed unrar but still no luck.

    I found something interesting out:
    If you have kde3 installed too.
    Even if running in kde4
    Use kde3 konqueror file manager
    right click extract here - works fine!

    And some other interesting point:

    If you work from root (don't shoot me I know I shouldn't do that) Ark works. So I gues it has something to do with rights.
