Decrypt and Extract Here Service Menu

Decrypt and Extract Here Service Menu

Link:  http://
Minimum required   KDE 3.5.x
Downloads:  2127
Submitted:  May 7 2006
Updated:  Mar 23 2007


This installs a service menu for Konqueror that decrypts and
extracts the contents of encrypted tarballs.

Once install, a "Decrypt and Extract Here" entry is added to the
"Actions" context menu in Konqueror. This entry will only appear for
the file extensions defined in the pgp-tarball-*.desktop files. The following extensions are defined:


Currently only gzip and bzip2 compressed tar archives are supported. If there
is a demand, other compression types (e.g. zip, etc.) can be easily added. Simply email the author and make the request.

Additionally, this RPM will modify the kgpg.desktop file by adding "application/pgp-tarball-bz2" and "application/pgp-tarball-gz" to the MimeType field. This allows encrypted tar archives to be opened by KGpg (just like any other encrypted file would be).

Thank you and enjoy!

* Fri Mar 23 2007 Alvin Beach
- Version 1.1-4
- Fixed bug. Encrypted tarballs with spaces in the filename would cause this service to
abort. Spaces in filenames are now supported.

* Tue Mar 13 2007 Alvin Beach
- Version 1.1-3
- Fix bug where multiple encrypted tarballs could not be decrypted at once.
- Known Bug: When Kgpg is updated, the application connection is removed. Modifying
may not be the best idea.

* Wed May 10 2006 Alvin Beach
- Version 1.1-2
- Added --use-agent to gpg command. If gpg and/or gpg-agent are not
configured properly, the user will not be prompted for the passphrase.
The --use-agent switch seems to be a good workaround.
See the TROUBLESHOOTING section in /usr/share/doc/decrypttarball/INSTALL
for information on configuring gpg-agent.
- Added pinentry to the RPMs dependency list. pinentry provides the
interface for entering the passphrase.

* Mon May 08 2006 Alvin Beach
- Version 1.1-1
- Added support for bzip2 compressed tarballs

* Sun May 07 2006 Alvin Beach
- Version 1.0-2
- Added KGpg association. This allows the encrypted tarballs to be opened
with KGpg. Without this, the "Open with" dialog box would appear.

* Sat May 06 2006 Alvin Beach
- Version 1.0-1
- First version.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
