After I experienced serious not yet resolved performance issues with Nautilus I decided to move to XUbuntu so I installed its metapackage from Ubuntu and started using it. It turns out that the archive plugin for Thunar (provides the "Extract here" option in the contextual menu when right clicking over a compressed archive) is not working, even after I apt-get purged it and reinstalled. It simply doesn't show its options in the contextual menu. What should I do to make it work?
I fixed it by changing corresponding command in the
gnome-file-roller.tap file. In my case this file has been placed at
Just edit it replacing this line:
file-roller "--extract-to=$(pwd)" --extract-here --force "$@"
with this one:
file-roller --extract-here --force "$@"
sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install xarchiver
Resolved intalling xarchiver and thunar-archive-plugin. I installed both at the same time. xarchiver is not needed now because Thunar-archive-plugin works with file roller, but saids it will work with xarchiver in the future.
