Description Jakub Schmidtke 2011-04-19 06:28:07 UTC
Version:           2.15 (using KDE 4.6.2) 
OS:                Linux

It is not possible to drop an item dragged from Ark's window onto FolderView window (showing the desktop folder).
There is a bug for that (189322) and it is marked as solved,
but it does not work in KDE 4.6.2 (and Ark 2.16, but it was not on the list of available versions in kde's bug system).

Reproducible: Always

OS: Linux (x86_64) release 2.6.38-ARCH
Compiler: gcc
Comment 1 Raphael Kubo da Costa 2011-05-01 05:48:30 UTC
What happens when you try to drag a file from Ark to folderview?

I've just tested it here with trunk and got the same results I described in comment 3 in bug 189322.
Comment 2 Jakub Schmidtke 2011-05-01 07:33:21 UTC
OK, I tested it and I got the behaviour you described, but only with zip files.
Dealing with rar files still doesn't work. What's interesting is that drag&drop from rar files work with regular dolphin windows, but not the folderview. Dragging from zip files (I'm not sure what other formats, tried only zip and rar) works with both folderview and dolphin windows.
Comment 3 Jakub Schmidtke 2011-05-01 07:38:53 UTC
I have also tried some other formats, and it doesn't work with 7zip and tar+bzip2. It works with tar+gzip, but only if the file created has '.tar.gz' extension. When it's '.tgz' it doesn't work anymore. The uncompressed '.tar' works as well. Also, when I create the file with tar+bzip2, but with '.tar.gz' extension it works.
Comment 4 Raphael Kubo da Costa 2011-05-01 20:52:46 UTC
Indeed, I was able to reproduce the issue here. I'll mark this report as a duplicate and reopen the other one.
