KDE how to ark to call Okular?

My parents are using Kubunto 10.12.
They often receive a .zip file containing a pdf. By default, ark opens zip fine, it offer a preview to open the pdf file. But that viewer is quite simple, without options to send file to printer for instance.
Does anybody know if is there a way to open the file directly with okular from within ark? That way it would be much simple for them to operate it.

that "preview" is because the zip is still ziped and only in ram

in ark extract the file from the zip first then read it
r-click the zip
and in kde select " extract" then from the pop up menu
"extract here ,Auto detect subfolders "
r-click the zip "open with" and select "okluar"

Thank you John. In order to open with okular the extraction is needed first.
