    File-roller alternative? (Annoying crash bug)

    File roller currently has a very annoying known bug that looks like it won't be fixed before the 12.10 release where it crashes every time you try to use "Extract to" or "Extract here" in thunar or pcmanfm.

    Is there any good alternatives for this program around?

    I use Nautilus on the XFCE session simply because Unity and the Gnome Shell do but that is different than Xubuntu . Some themes that have not been updated for Gnome 3.6 can cause this problem in Nautilus also. I contacted one theme maker that said he would be waiting for the final release to correct the problem. I don't know xfwm4 themes have the same problem or not.

    12.10 release is more or less now (depending on where you are in the world):
