Ark not working with rar files after unrar upgrade

Today after a #pacman -Syu the package unrar was upgraded from 4.2.4 to 5.0.2. After that, Ark cannot extract .rar archives. Did anyone else experience this problem?

Starting Ark from the command line doesn't show any error. I also tried installing libunrar (which was not needed before and also not installed as dependency) but it made no difference.

Using unrar from the command line works fine, though, so it's just Ark not being able to use it for some reason.

Re: Ark not working with rar files after unrar upgrade

Ark? Just searched the repos and the AUR, and I'm not seeing anything named ark. What is it that you're referring to?

Sorry, maybe I should have specified that Ark is the archive extracting tool used by KDE. A graphical frontend for gzip, unrar, etc...

The package is called kdeutils-ark

Ahh fair enough. I have no experience with KDE whatsoever, so I'll leave others to help you work through this problem smile Best of luck!

Re: Ark not working with rar files after unrar upgrade

I can confirm this. After unrar was updated, kdeutils-ark wont show the content of rar files. zips working fine.

Same here, no nothing ... even thought unrar can list and extract files (from term).

Re: Ark not working with rar files after unrar upgrade

Maybe related: It seems there is something wrong with the way unrar treats the directory seperator. I end up with files named foo\bar instead of a file bar inside directory foo. Since I don't found a way to report this bug upstream should I file a bug report on the arch bugtracker?

Re: Ark not working with rar files after unrar upgrade

Something tells me the newer 5.0.2 version is not playing nice with KDE. I'm using Fedora 19 with KDE and RPM Fusion and they still have the RarLab unrar at version 4.2.4. So I suppose reporting a bug for the new version would be useful, and you may want to downgrade back to 4.2.4 for now.

Re: Ark not working with rar files after unrar upgrade

Ark in KDE 4.11.2 will support rar 5.0 (current version 5.0.12) - see https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=319303
