Rox-filer bug?


hey,

when i am unzip a zip file with rox-filer, it always extract the archive file to my ~ .
I already set run action for zip file as ' unzip "$@" ' or ' unzip -d ./ "$@" ' , so logically it will extract the file to current directory.

so if anybody know how to fix it(extract archive file to current dir), pls help me.
btw..it the same prob happen with other archive file, .gz, .tar, .bz2

Why not use the nice Archive AppDir to unzip them with -just drop it on ther and click 'okay' in the window that pops up.

Or right click in the rox window, window > xterm here, then type unzip <your file>

Ask on the ROX-Filer mailing list -they give excellent attention there to all ROX questions.

for anybody who interested, here's the solution i found on their mailing list
- create a shell script and make chmod +x it and put it in /bin

#!/bin/sh
cd $(dirname $1)
unzip -x "$@"
