I have some files with Russian titles that are archived in a .rar file . When extracting them with the archive manager in Lubuntu, their names contained odd characters and the comment(invalid encoding) after extension.

When I extracted them with 7-zip (installed in Wine) their original Cyrillic names were kept correctly.

How can I make my Lubuntu archive manager do that?
