Thread: Rar files is empty with Ark

  1. #1

    Default Rar files is empty with Ark

    Hi
    I got a problem with Ark. When I open up a Rar file it is just empty. Zip works ok.
    I have unrar,rar installed

    I never had this problem with 10.3

    Anyone know what it is?

    If you have kde3 installed as well, you can use konqueror kde3 and it should work, right click extract here
    But you can install winrar under wine in kde4 to work round this issue for now

    You can install rar for linux instead. You can find it in the packman repo or here (performing a search): Bone.net

    Ideas/11.1 - openSUSE

    I suggested that they add 7z, rar and ace support out of the box for 11.1

    I don't know if devs pay attention to the wiki. I eventually need to find the mailing lists to suggest these ideas as well.

    So we're screwed for now? Is that what you're trying to say? It doesn't work under KDE4?

    No, what we're saying is that you can open the .rar file with another program.

    You can always compile in options for .rar support yourself.

    Or even better, you can install a servicemenu for KDE that allows you to just right click on a .rar file and extract it that way.

    Extract And Compress KDE4 KDE-Apps.org

    BTW, from reading Planet KDE it looks like the KDE 4 version of Ark is being improved a great deal. The interface right now sucks frankly, and the service menus aren't there. But the next version of Ark should be much nicer.

    It's too advanced for me to fix so I guess I have to wait then.
    Thanks for help though
