Konqueror Zip Integration problems

I just noticed the zip integration in my konqueror for KDE 3.5.2 is not working. I have gone to the konqueror configurations on the zip file and told it to use the integrated viewer, but nothing works. Looking at a konqueror from KDE 3.4.3 (which works for zip integration), I checked under Embedding settings and find that it has a service perference order set with "Archiver (ark_part)" for the zip format. I cannot add this because its not in the available options from the 'Add' menu. Anyone know how to add this?

It sounds like you're doing everything right - and you should be able to add/modify the program used by Konqueror at will. Here's what I know:

1. Konqueror uses the standard KDE file associations.
The KDE documentation page for setting up file associations is here:

2. On my system (and, it sounds like yours):
a) I happen to be running the KDE desktop (not GNOME, for example)

b) I go into KDE Control Center | KDE Components | File Associations | Application Types | x-zip
The filename patterns are *.zip and *.ZIP.
The Application Preference Order is "ark"
On my particular system (Suse 10.x/64), ark happens to be on the path, in /opt/kde3/bin/ark.

c) I can [Add] new file types; I can [Add] new file associations, and I can [Add] new Embedding services (whatever the heck that means ;-))

3. Finally, I imagine I could manually edit local options in my $HOME/.kde directory, or global options in my /opt/kde3. For example:
cd /opt/kde3/share; grep -i ark * */*|grep -i zip 2>/dev/null
Again, the root directories are probably SuSE-specific - but the general principles should be the same for any distro.

'Hope that helps .. PSM

I really appreciate the information, however the problem is that if when you try to add an embedded service, if that service is not already in the list of things available you cannot add it. Now I am not sure how to add to the list, but that might be the next solution....

Do you have zip and unzip installed?

Yes, I do. I believe I may have found a solution to this problem from the Ubuntu team.
