View Full Version : [ubuntu] Archive Manger or Nautilus bug? Can't extract files

There seems to be some problem with filename handling when ever filename includes # (hash mark).

If I try to extract file test#test.zip using archive managers direct right click link from nautilus it always fails. If I rename that same file to test-test.zip it works perfectly. So there has to be some kind of string handling bug there.

- Thanks

# is usually an illegal character for a file name. I am not sure about for Linux how ever.

Seems to be working fine, with everything else than Archive Manager.

It's seems that same problem exists with File Roller. I reported it..
