Description:

After upgrading to KDE 3.5 on FC4, I lost the ability to right click on RAR archives and decompress. I wrote this little service menu to re-add that functionality. It depends on ark, unrar, and kdialog. Simply copy the file to ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/kunrar.desktop.

I hope this helps anyone else that saw the same problem.

Changed name from unrar.desktop to kunrar.desktop to avoid confusion with actual unrar application

2006/02/07: Well, KDE 3.5.1 has resolved the problem that led me to create this service menu so it is no longer needed unless you like the "Keep Broken Files" or "Password Protected Archive" features. I like those options, and may clean them up, add a few features, and some error handling. Suggestions?

When I first saw this, I immediately thought, "great there's a new version of unrar from http://www.rarlab.com".

Well surprise. Might I suggest a name change to not conflict with the program unrar that already exists. Maybe kunrar or whatever suits your fancy.

Point taken, renamed to prevent confusion.

The plugin that decompress the archives (arkplugin) is in kdeaddons. When you have upgraded, maybe you forgot to upgrade the kdeaddons package.
No problem. Make new service menus. Great.

This feature is broken in kde 3.5 - the patch is already in SVN, so 3.5.1 will have this feature again.
