I download a tar.gz file. I try extract the content and burn it to a DVD ROM. I am new to command line input. Ark in KDE 4 can show the content in tar.gz, but it only extract the root files and folders, not the sub folder below. Ark cannot do that?
How to open or Untar a “tar.gz” file in Linux or Unix Terminal session (Alt-F2: Type in Konsole & press <enter> in KDE):
The following tutorial assumes the name of your file is yourfile.tar.gz Replace with your actual filename.
From the terminal, change to the directory where yourfile.tar.gz has been downloaded.
Type tar -zxvf yourfile.tar.gz to extract the file to the current directory.
You can specify a different directory to extract to using -C parameter and a path to the directory as follows:
Example: tar -C /myfolder -zxvf yourfile.tar.gz

I have no problems extracting folders with subfolders with ark from an
archive so I wonder if you can describe more detailed how you use ark so
that this happens.
