Re: Opening files from file-roller

I understand what you're saying :-\ It makes sense. I think that the bug is probably in the xorg documentation package (because it uses *.PS instead of *.ps). I don't exactly know how to file a bug report (or even if it is necessary), so I think that I might just use file-roller as is. I think that I can add my own application to the list of "Recent applications" and "open" the files that way. Thanks to all for your helpful replies!

Recently I wanted to browse the xorg documentation (xorg-x11-doc package) which I downloaded and installed for my system (CentOS 4). This package contains compressed postscript files (*.PS.gz) which I need to open with file-roller. When I open these files the postscript file appears in the archive but when I try to open the postscript file (from file-roller), there are no "Available applications". If I extract the file I can then right click on the file in nautilus and select either "Open with 'PostScript Viewer'" or "Open with 'KGhostView'". This is where I think file-roller is not doing what it's supposed to do. Is this wrong? Is there some setting I'm missing? Thanks for your input, it's very helpful.
