Extract here doesn't work

extract here doesn’t work in deepin file manager.

do you know how to fix?


Do you have one of the ‘archive/compression’ (for zip and tar) programs installed? Arch Wiki has a section on them.

i install unarar and 7zip.

if there is other better please tell me

Hi @humma,


What location are you trying to extract the file to?

I push in the menu extract here to decompress in the ame folder.

Try to install file-roller :

pacman -S file-roller

I installed xarchiver which seems to work well.

we could need to ad one to the install list for deepin.
file-roller is a optional dependency for deepin-filemanager so this should be the best to choose :wink:


Good idea, yes.
It’s also a very small file-roller and I’ve been using it for years, it never failed me !

From other forums I know this differently, there the solution is the solution and not
