Description of problem:
When I right-click on a .rar archive the file roller complains about unsupported format. I have unrar-3.4.3-1.1.fc3.rf package installed which was left after upgrade from FC3. I have no problems extraxting the files using unrar x archive_name.rar in the console.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get any .rar archive
2. Right-click on the archive file and choose Extract Here
3. Read "Archive type not suporrted" error message.
Actual Results: "Archive type not suporrted" error message.
Expected Results: Extract the archive.
the unrar package that I have installed comes form dag repository and it was working ok in FC3.
I believe this is fixed in Rawhide; according to
http://fileroller.sourceforge.net/ it was fixed in 2.9.3 and we ship 2.10.0 in
Rawhide. Also, the GNOME bug for this issue is this one
but there is no patch attached to that bug. I suggest to upgrade to FC4 when it
is released as I won't backport this fix since rar isn't shipped in the Fedora
This issue seems to be resolved in version 10.0.3 Is there any chance to get it
