Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 458136
Create password protected .zip file
Last modified: 2010-06-28 06:42:29 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm trying to create a password-protected .zip file. Although I use the menu option Edit -> Password, enter a password and press OK, the .zip file remains unprotected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Press New button.
Type the filename and select .zip from file type list.
Add a file to your filename.zip.
Use menu option Edit -> Password, type a password and press OK.
Open filename.zip with file-roller or unzip, no password asked.
Its a very bad implementation but you actually have to enable the password BEFORE adding the files. This isn't overly clear and doesn't make much sense - but it does work.
I have verified that with rar or zip if you set passwords after adding your files, they do not take effect. If you set the password first, all is well.
Assigning bug as this is really bad from a usability point of view and should be fixed.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
