ark error

Hi all. I get this error message from ark when trying to install mozilla plugins (as either a regular user or root): the plugger and flash plugins.

"The archive to extract from no longer exists."

Both files are indeed still in the folder. Ark gives this message after I do the following: Open, choose the file, Edit, Select All. As soon as I try Extract, I receive that message.

I've extracted the files with 'tar -xvzf filename', but I'd like to fix...whatever I ark.

I'm at a *total* loss here. Any hints are appreciated.
