Description Pavel Alexeev 2010-06-23 10:12:42 UTC
Description of problem:
Just after start 
$ LANG=C ark KLADR.7z
appeared window with error:
Reading the archive '/home/pasha/temp/Kladr/KLADR.7z' failed with the error 'Failed to locate program '7z' in PATH.'

In Fedora 7z binary called 7za but I don't found where I can adjust it in settings of Ark.
$ rpm -ql p7zip | grep -i bin
/usr/bin/7za


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -q kdeutils p7zip 
kdeutils-4.4.4-1.fc13.i686
p7zip-9.04-1.fc13.i686

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Just try open 7zip archive in Ark

Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2010-06-23 11:36:26 UTC
Not sure why 
1. ark upstream chose to use 7z instead of 7za, but 7z seems to be provided by p7zip-plugins.
2. why 7z is included in p7zip-plugins instead of main p7zip package.

?

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2010-06-23 11:42:16 UTC
From what I can gather, 7za is a stripped down version of 7z, but since it's only used for extracting 7z files in ark, using 7za should be doable.

Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2010-06-23 13:26:32 UTC
Ark should really check what's available, i.e. try 7za (the 7z-only version) first, and then 7z (the plugin-enabled version).

Comment 4 Kevin Kofler 2010-06-23 16:31:14 UTC
This is the code Krusader uses:
http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/extragear/utils/krusader/krusader/Konfigurator/kgdependencies.cpp?revision=1098187&view=markup
It tries 7z first, then 7za.

Ark will need to be fixed to do something similar.

Comment 5 Felix Möller 2011-03-23 22:27:15 UTC
I just wanted to report the same issue.

Copying 7za to 7z "solves"  this problem ...

Comment 6 Felix Möller 2011-03-23 22:31:51 UTC
See https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=208864

and 

# rpm -qf /usr/bin/7z
p7zip-plugins-9.13-1.fc14.i686

Comment 7 Kevin Kofler 2011-03-23 22:37:58 UTC
I reopened the upstream bug. Ark really needs only 7za, it should support both 7za and 7z.

Comment 8 Rex Dieter 2011-03-24 16:06:46 UTC
the status quo of ark.desktop claiming to support 7z mimetype, and not (possibly) not working is bad.

I'm tempted to do one of:
1.  add Requires: p7zip-plugins
or
2.  add Requires: p7zip , and patch to use 7za instead

I'm leaning toward 1, since it's easier, and waiting for the theoretically better option where ark supports either 7z or 7za (hopefully from upstream).

Comment 9 Rex Dieter 2011-03-24 16:10:42 UTC
filed related bug #690551 asking that p7zip-plugins drop Requires: p7zip

Comment 10 Rex Dieter 2011-03-24 16:13:34 UTC
Some other more complicated options:
3. split up mimetype support similar to how okular does, into separate .desktop files, and possibly use TryExec= to conditionalize support on whether helper apps are present or not.
