Description of problem:
I can't make an archive from a directory (right click -> create
archive (or a kind, my locales set to hungarian)). I get an empty
error message window, with title "Xarchiver 0.5.2", and a sort of
text: "Error occured at accessing the archive". Screenshot attached.
It creates an empty archive (0 length).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Thunar
2. Right click on a directory
3. Choose create archive (or something similar)
4. Enter name, choose gz. (Under Xubuntu I can choose here .tar.gz, which I prefer)
Empty archive with 0 length
Valid archive with length > 0
Can you try:
* Close all Thunar Windows
* Open up a terminal.
* run "Thunar" from the terminal.
* perform the steps to reproduce
* See if any output was produced on the terminal. If so, attach it here.
Also, can you do:
rpm -q Thunar xarchiver
and add that info here?
I assume you are not out of disk space or anything like that. 'df' should tell you.

The problem still exists in FC14 (see attachment), the software packages are the same:
As you can see in the Xarchiver docu, it can handle .tar.bz2 (Figure 3.1. New dialog), so it's just a misconfiguration (or a kind):
But I installed file-roller (Ubuntu uses it instead of xarchiver), and it works fine.
Actually i think this is a Xarchiver bug that cannot zip a folder that contains space in its name.
Can you do those two
1. Zip the folder that has space in it name using another compression method.
2. Change the name of the folder so it doesn't contains space.
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached 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, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
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:
