RHEL 3 U5 AS and Ark


I am used to using Ark in SLES KDE. I understand that Ark is part of the KDE project. When I installed RHEL 3 U5 AS, I selected KDE and deselected Gnome. When I try to register archive file extensions and invoke Ark, it is not found. Do I need to go and get Ark from somewhere or is it hidden somewhere in my RHEL installation?

thanks for any ideas,

I just realized that Ark is there. Not sure why it did not show up as the default app for x-tarz file extentions associations.

Also, the Konqueror right click menu is different than I am used to. Usually, one would see: "Actions" then 8 or so archive options. The Redhat KDE Konqueror right click has a user interface bug as it is called "Extract Here..." when it is really an "Extract To..." that defaults to here. Untill I noticed this bug, I found myself moving the archive files to my target location, using the misnamed "Extract Here..." and then moving the archive files back to where they belonged.
