Ark doesn't extract

Hello,

I would to extract some .zip files with Ark but doesn't do. I have tried to download another .zip archive of source code and it worked. But with those archives that I have recently downloaded, nothing.
And p7zip seems doesn't do anything.
I thought that the archives was corrupted, but in Windows I can extract them.

What could be?
Thanks, Grant.

Re: Ark doesn't extract

"Doesn't do anything" isn't much to go on; post the errors if any. Have you tried using unzip?

Re: Ark doesn't extract

Is installed. I have forgotten to say that files have a password.  .zip and .7z are different right? If true, those files are .7z.

Re: Ark doesn't extract

Yes, zip and 7z are very different. When you run '7z x <archive>' what is the output?

Re: Ark doesn't extract

It has success. But why Ark doesn't do that?

Re: Ark doesn't extract

Could be many reasons. Does Ark spit out errors to the terminal when you try to extract a 7z file with it?

Great things come in tar.xz packages.

The files are .7z, not .zip (and he has p7zip installed).

It's simple: it doesn't do anything. Trying opening a file, from the program, it doesn't open it.

Correct.
For now I use a for statement to extract all downloaded. files.

A really strange thing is that from the dolpin menu, also with 7zip the archive isn't extracted.

Re: Ark doesn't extract

For me installing unzip package from extra work in Ark.

Have you try this command:

 7z e /path/to/your/file

Does it work?

Run "ark file.extension" in the terminal and see if you get any output.

Ark had problems with passwords, maybe it has them still/again. Or it is some general problem with some archives, if you don't even get prompted for a password. Browse bugs.kde.org.

Re: Ark doesn't extract

I tried how you said: ark is opened and on the right there is the filename. For the rest, anything: in terminal, password requests anything.
I should to try to open a .7z file without password?

Hi all,
I'm experiencing the same problem. Ark does not extract 7z files protected with a password.
extracting it asks for password but seems it does not extract anything.
Everything works using the command line as Chuck Arch Linux said.

I would change the title of the thread.

Thanks
