Version: 2.1 Beta 2
Installed from: Debian
When I click on a .tar.gz in Konqueror the file is gently
"mounted" into Konqueror file system trough the "tar:"
protocol. I saw that the "gzip:" protocol exists but when
I click on a .gz (not .tar.gz) file it opens KAR. I
looked in the extension associations (mime) but the
configuration is identical for .tar.gz and .gz.
I would be nice if we could open a .gz file transparently
as we can already do with .tar.gz. ARK should be open
(submitted via bugs.kde.org)
somebody, tell me, why konqueror is so slow when unpacking big (~5mb) tarballs?
it takes 10-20 times longer than when i use commandline
how can we think about new features (khtml, kjs, etc) when the code we have today is highly unoptimized?
why nautilus displays .ps documents 2-5 times faster than kghostscript (with the same functionality)?
.xxx.gz should call the ioslave which handles .xxx, with an uncompress on-the-fly in the input pipeline. If ioslaves can declare themselves able to handle xxx, you can skip the uncompress.
/me adds another few votes to the 291.

Why does this still not work in Konqueror? (On Kubuntu/Breezy that is)
I believe there was a time when opening a zip-file in Konqueror was some kind of embedded, not using Ark. I think I was using SuSE back then.
Opening a zipped file (in whatever compression format) by clicking on it should be like entering a directory. I personally do not like the "Preview in Archiver" option from the context menu.
Vote for this bugfix!
