Description dhardy 2014-08-14 08:20:09 UTC
Description of problem:
Trying to open a rar archive in Ark produces the message "Failed to locate the program unrar on disk."

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Ark 2.19

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try opening a rar file in Ark

Additional info:
The program 'unar' can extract the archive in question fine, but Ark doesn't use it.

And, no, I am not suggesting that anyone ever _use_ rar ...

There exists a patch to make Ark use unar, we should apply it.

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2014-08-14 13:02:44 UTC
Yeah, been waiting for
to get reviewed and accepted upstream, but I suppose something is better than nothing.
