    context menu in linux version

    I have installed Freearc 0.60RC2 on Ubuntu 9.10.

    Linux version hasn't context menu in files, only happens to me? or linux version hasn't it?

    I feel that the performance (speed compression) is lower than Windows version.

    1. my linux-fu is very low, so i don't know how to implement context menus. otoh, it can be done without me - in windows contex menu is entirely separate utility that runs freearc with specific command-line p[arameters. anyone can run freearc on linux with the same parameters, implementing integration with any filemanager

    2. yes, because a) unix version still uses old lzma version, and b) unix version compiled with gcc while windows version uses more efficient intel compiler


    generally speaking, there are much less interest in linux version from users' side, so it gets less attention from my side

    Isn't compression code OS-independent?

    lzma code uses OS-specific calls for multithreading. i've imported p7zip code, but something in my lzma 9.07 port crashes on linux and i still not debugged it

    Hey Bulat I love FreeArc I have a question. Based on the code for torrent7zip could you rewrite this for FreeArc? What it does is it makes an archive the same with any computer, it is the same MD5 and it allows for consistency.

    • increased compression a bit for -mex1/2
    • 4x4: reliable error handling
    • 4x4: i0 support

    Why do you not compile with icc under linux too?

    EDIT:

    How about an own iso-like format?

    new version:
    • UAC compatibility - when you change Explorer Integration in the Settings dialog, it asks your permission
    • allow to enable/disable Personal Settings and Explorer Integration due installation
    • SREP added to PowerPack and arc.ini
    • TTA: improved memory handling
    • -mex1..5: added fast compression for already compressed files
    • UI: use "1,234,567" instead of "1.234.567"


    Why do you not compile with icc under linux too?
    i just can't find time to setup it

    I will have an look for nautilus shell integration.
    great! to begin, we just need a sample that 1) extracts list of files selected, 2) adds some menu items based on these

    How about an own iso-like format?
    you mean that i have too much spare time and should develop one more archive format?

    you may try two things:
    1. run freearc as admin, disable integration, press OK, and enable it again
    2. reinstall it, installer will ask you for admin permissions

    File Association works fine...but not the Context Menu

    1. was the trick in all version before
    2. does not help, either

    Admin permissions are not the problem - FA can write in C:\Windows..

    I did some restarts - without success

    Context Menu enabling needs admin rights because it writes to Registry

    I have found a solution:
    1. Delete ArcShellExt.dll in the folder ArcShellExt
    2. Rename ArcShellExt-64.dll to ArcShellExt.dll
    3. Activate it FA...

    Thats it

    one more question:

    when will you release version 0.6 final?

    because of creating deb and unpacking script.

    Just updated to latest version via portable archives and found a small issue. When you activate Explorer integration in "Settings" and then press "OK" - the following error message appears 2 times (see screenshot). I see some Manager of FreeArc integration settings.exe is started with long command line which includes ArcShellExt-64.dll exactly two times.

    Also, as I see, now settings stored inside freearc.ini file. Nice, but why this change have been made silently?

    it was introduced in oct22 version: "freearc.ini: joined with feearc.history (at the last end!). merge is done automatically on installation/first run, but you are warned"

    about your screenshot: thanks, i will fix it
