    Default how to have extract her service in plasma5

    in KDE4 I have services like "extract here" with ark.
    called ark_dndextract.desktop
    it is in /usr/share/kde4/services/
    and inside it there is this
    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Type=Service
    X-KDE-ServiceTypes=KonqDndPopupMenu/Plugin
    X-KDE-Library=libextracthere
    Name=Ark Extract Here
    ...many others names...
    MimeType=application/x-tar;application/x-compressed-tar;application/x-bzip-compressed-tar;application/x-tarz;application/x-xz-compressed-tar;application/x-lzma-compressed-tar;application/x-deb;application/x-cd-image;application/x-bcpio;application/x-cpio;application/x-cpio-compressed;application/x-sv4cpio;application/x-sv4crc;application/x-rpm;application/x-source-rpm;application/vnd.ms-cab-compressed;application/x-servicepack;application/x-rar;application/x-7z-compressed;application/x-java-archive;application/zip;application/x-compress;application/x-gzip;application/x-bzip;application/x-bzip2;application/x-lzma;application/x-xz;application/lha;application/x-lha;application/maclha;
    so, it seems a simple desktop file, how can I have the same service in plasma5??

    Copy it to /usr/share/kservices5/.

    OTOH, it should be provided by ark5, have you installed that?
    It has been greatly improved recently, and should be much better than the KDE4 version...

    maaanythanks, installed ark5 and the service is ok now.
    I was looking at other useful services like kim, I saw in /usr/share/kservices5/ and there is kim_compressandresize that is a link at ../../kde4/services/ServiceMenus/kim_compressandresize.desktop and others, but they doesn't appear in rightclick menu, is it possible to have them also??

    Well, if there is a proper .desktop file in /usr/share/kservices5/ServiceMenus/, it's entries should show up in Plasma5's and the KF5 based dolphin's context menu.
    Unless this has been changed recently, but I don't think so...

    I just tried, and AFAICT dolphin(5) does show the things from /usr/share/kservices5/ServiceMenus/ here, and the folderview too.
    If it doesn't work, the corresponding .desktop file may be broken/incompatible.
