I want to update file-roller from 2.22.3 (I'm on Hardy and this is native) to 2.24.1. This is so I can create multi-part archives (zip or rar) for uploading. In 2.22.3 there is no 'other options' button which as I understand is where the option to create a multi-part archive is.

I tried uninstalling file-roller 2.22.3 through Synaptic but it said that it needed to uninstall ubuntu-desktop as well, I thought this wouldn't be a good idea!?

Any help appreciated
