Thread: No "extract here" in context menu (dolphin) ark does not support .rar?

  1. #1

    Default No "extract here" in context menu (dolphin) ark does not support .rar?

    I've reinstalled tumbleweed, kde.

    I noticed that in dolphin, context menu (right click) for a .rar archive there is not the option "Extract here" that I've always seen in previous versions. How can I make it appear?
    also If i try ark, it says unsupported. how can i unzip my .rar's?

    Thanks in advance.

    Check that both rar and unrar are installed. After installing one (or both) here there is a context menu option and it works, although it is now called "Extract package here" (translated from pt_BR, so it might be a little different).

    unrar is installed by default, but rar is from packman, IINM there are licensing issues that preclude it being in the distro.

    Note: That's in LEAP 42.3, I don't think TW will be different.

    rar archives should be handled with the unrar package which is packaged for opensuse
    https://software.opensuse.org/package/unrar
    it should be installed check and see if it's installed
    Code:
    zupper se -si unrar
    if it's not installed install it
    rar is propitiatory software and is not included with opensuse, packman re-packages it so you can get it from packman
    http://packman.links2linux.org/package/rar
    if you have the packman repo just do
    Code:
    zypper in rar
    or get the rar for linux tar ball from rarlab

    unrar is part of the default installation. HOWEVER, at least in my last LEAP install, the context menu would only appear after installing rar (from packman).
