View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can't create archive from some file types

December 16th, 2008, 02:17 PM
Hello all

A bit of an odd one here. A couple of weeks after a fresh install of 8.10 I find that my right-click context menu won't allow me to 'Create Archive' for some file types.

.xls and .ott seem to be affected - the system seems to think they are archives to be unzipped (see pic)

Of course I can start the archive manager and work around this, but is there a way for me to fix this?

...could it be something to do with which file types are registered in gnome to be opened with archive manager? I've gone into 'file proiperties' and checked that they are to be opened with openoffice. any ideas?
