Comment 1 Alex Tsi 2012-10-18 12:10:12 UTC
There are some files that have a little strange name, so when ark tries to open them i get an error.
In the link below, there are two pdfs inside with names : _1965___120618.pdf  and ____2012-13_120910.pdf
When i try to open them or extract them and then open them, the names looks messed up, somrthing like ���_�����������_�����_��������_1965_�_������_120618.pdf and ���_1965_�_������_120618.pdf 
and i get an error message:
Could not open /tmp/���_1965_�_������_120618.pdf.

i am however able to open documents if i use dolphin and browse zip archives like folders.
But if i right click on zip file and choose "Open with ark" i get the problem i mentioned.
Here is the link:

I should also add that if i extract the files, not only i cannot open the pdfs, but i cannot even delete them! It says : The file or folder does not exist. 
I can only delete it using command line.
Comment 3 Raphael Kubo da Costa 2012-10-18 12:26:43 UTC
The archive seems to include files whose names are not encoded in UTF-8, which is expected by KDE as a whole. Right now, there is not much to do other than trying to use a program such as `convmv' to convert the file names after extraction so they can be manipulated in other programs as well.
