After a bit of a hunt, I found this in /etc/mc/mc.ext

:) I'm not exactly expert on mc regex, but I can't see what the problem is. I also tried renaming a .tlz to .tar.lzma. After doing this, no problem opening it, and no problems with mc not recognizing it as a compressed tar file.

Can anyone see what the problem is? Anyone reproduce the problem?

:) Even better, any suggestions as to a fix that works?


This is a slightly different question, but along the same lines.

Does anyone happen to know if similar procedures will open a Slackware .txz file or not?

Sorry, this is on my list of things to look into, but I am also rather busy trying to hold my end up over here and I simply have not had time to do much in that direction.
