ark vs big zip

I’m using Leap V42.3, 64 bit, and KDE.

After downloading from github

I’m trying to unzip it with ark.

Clicking on file brings up ark, then I select a destination directory, then I click extract.

It can run for hours but never finishes the extraction.

I’ve downloaded several versions recently, same issue.

It’s a big file, 138 Mb, 33 folders and over 86000 files.

On a W10 Thinkpad laptop, it takes 30 minutes at most.

Any suggestions?

Thank you.



Maybe you see any error.

But unzip is much faster:


ark doesn’t work with this file.

unzip worked really fast by comparison.

Thank you.
