Description molnat 2008-12-04 12:27:29 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 3.5.10)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages

GNU tar (>1.20) has now support for lzma-compression (tar option --lzma).

Krusader will introduce support for tar.lzma archives soon:


Therefore, it would be favorable to have the lzma-compression included into the KDE tar protocol and have mime types for tar.lzma/lzma.
