Created attachment 329855 [details]
A test file

Description of problem:
If I put a file with stressed vowels (I mean letters like à è ì ò ù) in a Windows archive and I open it in Linux, I have that I can't extract the file, but I can extract the entire archive (this also happens with archives with several files, I can extract only files without the letters I said).
When I extract the entire archive, of course, the filename lacks of the stressed letter, but I can insert it manually.
I'm not saying File Roller should support various encoding formats (oops... It should!), but at least if I can extract the entire archive, I should be able to extract the single file, am I wrong?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start Windows;
2.Create two files, one with a stressed vowel and one without it;
3.Select both and right-click over them; select "Send to/Compressed folder";
4.Open the new file in Fedora;

Actual results:
I can extract only the file without the stress or the archive, not the one with the "stressed" filename;

Expected results:
I should be able at least to extract it without decompressing the entire archive.
To be quite honest, there should be an encoding detection in file-roller...

Additional info:
I put a copy of a test archive as an attachment.
I created that file with 7-zip, so it isn't a Windows Compressed Folders issue.

I've forgotten: am I right to put this thread in the "Localization" section, or should I pass this thread to Fedora developers?
But, more important: have I to write in English when posting a thread about localization, or am I a stupid?

Hallo Emanuele, imho this is not a localization specific bug.
You should open a bug against file-roller instead.
If I'm not wrong, file-roller in not a project which fedora is upstream, so if you want, you must file the bug here
Comment 3 Emanuele Bellini 2009-02-22 09:31:06 EST
Ok, I had to understand that localization bugs aren't related to the working of the program.
I'll try to submit this bug again to this bugzilla... Since I can't take back the status to "new", this is the new bug thread:


I'll hear what they've to say... See you!
