Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1305796
Fileroller is unable to correctly open compressed tar archive, if contains any extra character in suffix
Last modified: 2016-07-19 16:00:40 EDT
Description of problem:
File-roller fails to open a file, which contains "~" in its name. Under "fails" I mean, it does not extract correctly tar file, only decompresses the gun/bunzipped part.
In file-roller window, you would be shown only with <filename>.tar<special-char>1.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a web browser (I have tested only on firefox).
2. Click on archive to download and check open instead of save option [test.tar.gz]
3. Repeat again on same link. File will be stored with different suffix [test.tar-1.gz]
4. Opened file-roller has a problem with extracting the file.
Only decompressed file is shown. Archive is still "tarred".
Archive should be decompressed and extracted from tar archive. Content of archive should be visible.
This also might be a firefox's issue, but I think that file-roller should be capable of executing a "$file <archive>"
and finding out what to use, instead of failing on "untar".
$ ls /tmp/mozilla_<username>0/
test.tar-1.bz2 test.tar-2.bz2 test.tar.bz2
$ file test.tar.bz2
test.tar.bz2: bzip2 compressed data, block size = 900k
$ file test.tar-2.bz2
test.tar-2.bz2: bzip2 compressed data, block size = 900k
Same happens with test.tar~2.bz2 & test.tar2.bz2.
