This is a servicemenu which allows integration with WinRar via Wine.

* Kde 3.5.x+konqueror OR kde4+dolphin
* Wine (tested with 0.9.46)
* Winrar installed under "c:\program files\winrar\winrar.exe" (Tested with winrar version 3.71)

Copy winerar_kde4.desktop file to ~/.kde4/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/

Copy winerar_kde3.desktop file to ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/

Right Click on a bunch of files and go to the submenu "WineRar"

* Support for extracting multivolume archives (by now, you'll have to select the second volume (simply go up one level) as winrar didn't find by himself)
* More Translations
* Ideas?


*Small fix in quick compress line and utf-8 strings for kde4 version.

*Uploaded a modified version which works with dolphin+kde4

*First 0.5a Release
11-Oct-2007 0.5b
* Fixed a Bug which prevented to create archives from folders.
12-Oct-2007 0.51b
* Fixed a silly Bug which prevented to use the "Compress..." item, sorry for that.
15-Oct-2007 0.52b

* Replaced "\" -> "\\" (solves a compatibility problem with kubuntu, 10x ziavenera)
* Added "Open with winrar"
* Added "Fix the Archive"

* Added italian and Spanish Translations
* Added Polish Language (Jarek)
* Added France Language (Tanguy Yannick)

Your service menu is very usuful, there is no program which can be compared to Winrar, fortunately it works under wine

added polish translation but i think it should be in utf8


Slackware Current
kernel 2.6.x

Why would you want to use a proprietary application you have to pay for and which you have to run in WINE when there's native GNU/Linux, Free equivalents like p7zip (which already has better KDE integration than this, such as a kioslave and native support in Krusader)?

Moreover, the RAR decompression code has licensing issues, so people will not be able to decompress the RAR archives you're creating with truly Free Software. Creating content in proprietary formats is bad.

 it's not right...

As for me it's bad idea to emulate winrar :
1. winrar IS COMERCIAL and for mustdie (as a result - it is unstable).
2. Using wine we get ONLY less compress / decompress speed and nothing more.
3. People who wants work under linux must use *nix utilities. Only in that way they will understand (at last) why linux is much better then Windows.

"1. winrar IS COMERCIAL and for mustdie (as a result - it is unstable)."

Well being a commercial application doesn't necessary make it "unstable" only not trustworthy :D and I don't see any purpose for it to "Die" LOL

"2. Using wine we get ONLY less compress / decompress speed and nothing more."
True :D

"3. People who wants work under linux must use *nix utilities. Only in that way they will understand (at last) why linux is much better then Windows."

Well isn't there a port of WinRAR to Linux system? (there is for "unRAR" atleast)

the RAR format is so/so :D gunzip tarballs are just fine for most needs :D for those things that need extra compression Then I use 7za :D or lzma :D.

Best quote :D "linux is much better then Windows." hehe Nice
I personally don't see why one would run a "commercial" or "Shareware" application under a non-commercail and a Free OS???

False, wine does not Emulate, it "wraps" windows libraries to a set of linux ones written to replace the originals.
In some cases wine has also proven to be faster.
So you get the same speed by running it natively under windows.

i just tried it, and i think its nice... i wont use, as i prefer other free applications, but i support your idea, it's nice for former windows users to move smooth to linux...

I think, using unrar (from repo) is better solution. Well, could You simply this "KDE Improvement" with "WINRar" replace with "rar" / "unrar"? Functionality the same, speed much more than with "wine".

Linux is like wigwam... No windows, no gates... Just Apache inside.

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.
