Description Gerald Cox 2008-04-28 21:30:28 EDT
Description of problem:
Cannot open 7z archives.  arK is the KDE supplied graphical front end to read
archive files, File Roller is used for GNOME. 
Installed kio_p7zip-0.3.1-7.fc9.x86_64 

After application, was able to open 7z archives with FileRoller, but unable to
open with arK.

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

How reproducible:
Try to open 7z archive with arK

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Launch arK application
2.  Select open, 7z does not appear as supported filetype
Actual results:
7z does not appear as supported filetype
archive does not open

Expected results:
7z appears as supported filetype
archive can be opened

Additional info:
After installation of the 7z rpms listed above, archives are now supported using
fileroller, but should be able to open using arK
Comment 1 Kevin Kofler 2008-04-28 21:38:41 EDT
7z support was simply never ported to the new plugin-based version of Ark in 
KDE 4. :-(
Comment 2 Lukáš Tinkl 2008-04-29 06:37:58 EDT
As Kevin noted, you should probably file a wishlist upstream, there's nothing 
we can do about this as the feature is simply not implemented
