If you explain what the problem actually is and supply the error message if any plus any logs etc. someone may be able to offer assistance.

Re: File-Roler in Xfce Broken after Recent Updates

I can confirm, to some extent as there isn't much additional info, what the OP reports, checked both in XFCE and Openbox.

In my case the option 'Extract here' does not work as it should whereas 'Open with...' and 'Extract in...' work correctly.

No error log anywhere as far as I can tell.

Seems to work for me with .tar.gz. Does it make a difference what kind of archive it is?

Same here.  Posting to double confirm as well as mark my place so I can check back later for some smart user to come in with a fix smile

Same here with thunar/file-roller in Openbox: "Extract here" doesn't work anymore. And no, AaronBP, not with .tar.gz either.
In a terminal "file-roller --ecxtract-here blabla.tar.gz" works without problems, also "Extract to" and "Create archive" from the menu.
Just the "Extract here" entry (which I use very often) doesn't work anymore.

Re: File-Roler in Xfce Broken after Recent Updates

log as root , go to   "/usr/lib/xfce4/thunar-archive-plugin/" open "file-roller.tap" with text editor

Go to this section

extract-here)
    exec file-roller "--extract-to=$(pwd)" --extract-here --force "$@"
    ;;

It has to be

extract-here)
    exec file-roller "--extract-here=$(pwd)" --extract-here --force "$@"
    ;;

It worked for me

Re: File-Roler in Xfce Broken after Recent Updates

Entering the command

file-roller "--extract-to=$(pwd)" --extract-here --force $archivename

directly into the terminal works for me as well, so I'm not sure where the problem is coming from for you guys...

Re: File-Roler in Xfce Broken after Recent Updates

Bug is in file-roller which crashes when the --extract-to option is used.

I added a patch in file-roller 3.6.2-2 and 'Extract Here' should once again work.
