Compress with 7z in Nautilus - password feature disabled


I have just reinstalled Fedora 14 and installed p7zip, but the encryption option is disabled. I seem to remember having to install something else to get this last time but have no idea what it was...

I have just reinstalled Fedora 14
fedora 14 is and HAS been unsupported sense 2011-12-08 -- Dec.8 2011

do not use a dead and unsupported OS

Please stay current and install fedora 17

ALL the bugs and security holes that HAVE been fixed scene 14 went EOL, ARE NOT available for 14

the mirrors for 14 are going dark seeing as they are for a dead version of fedora
-- 386 --

also HOW did you install p7z
from one of the old 14 repos
from source
if source then it is likely incompatible with the unsupported 14

I installed with the package manager:

$sudo yum install p7zip

I did upgrade to Fedora 15 a while ago but I don't like Gnome 3 so I have decided to stick with 14 for now. I have also tried KDE, XFCE and a couple of other desktops but don't find any of them as usable as Gnome 2. I can understand why the Gnome devs would want to do something different but as far as I'm concerned the old design - static panels with the window list and other panel applets - wasn't broken. I am yet to find anything, such as switching between windows etc, that is quicker or easier with the Gnome 3 interface. But I'm going off topic...

Ah! I've found it, it's in a package called p7zip-plugins.
