Description Hans Liao 2013-09-05 23:02:16 UTC
Ark opens .rar archive as blank. I can extract the .rar archive with the unrar command but I can't open them with ark.

I've tried opening the .rar archive with ark by clicking on the download items from the browser. I tried opening the .rar archive by launching ark directly to open the file. Both of the before-mentioned methods opens the .rar archive as blank.

I've tried several .rar archives with the same result.

I've tried opening other types of archives with ark, such as .zip and .tar.gz, with no problems at all.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch ark
2. open a .rar archive
3. nothing shows up on ark
Actual Results:  
The ark window shows nothing in the .rar archive.

Expected Results:  
The files within the archive should have been displayed.

Are you using unrar version 5.x?

Hi Christoph,

Here's the output of my unrar command:

Usage:     unrar <command> -<switch 1> -<switch N> <archive> <files...>
