File Roller oddity....

So I use File Roller to extract my rars. Worked perfectly for the first little while, I double clicked the rar, press extract - ok, it extracted…voila.

Now its acting funny. I hit extract, then I click ok, but nothing happens, press ok again… and again, nothing.

The only way I can now extract files is by the following method…

Double-click the rar file.
Click on the file in the File Roller window
Press Extract
Select “All files” instead of “Selected Files”
Hit ok

And then it extracts it. Very weird. Thats the only way it works.

I’m pretty new to linux… so I’m not sure whats going on. Any ideas?

Try running the file roller from a terminal and see if there are any messages. You may get a clue of what the problem is.
