Description of problem:
This really isn't a bug, but more a request to clean up some of those annoying
errors produced by Nautilus when you double-click a file in the display window.
 My biggest pet-peeve is that Nautilus, buy default, doen't understand standard
compressed file formats (tgz, zip, etc.).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install RedHat 7.3 with Gnome as default environment.
2.open Nautilus file manager.
3.double click on any archived file

Actual Results:  Nautilus dispalays a "No Viewer" error.

Expected Results:  Should open the file in an archive manager.

Additional info:

I've downloaded and installed File Roller 1.106 archive manager
(http://fileroller.sourceforge.net/).  It works great.  Why not include it as a
standard package in RedHat Linux.

File roller is included in Rawhide, thanks for the suggestion.
