Bug Description

Dolphin context menu is missing "Compress"/"Extract" entries in compare with Kubuntu 14.04.3 with its KDE4. I couldn't find any other way of compressing/extracting archives apart from using Ark itself.

As posted on http://www.linuxgnut.com/dolphin-extract-menus-missing-in-kubuntu-1510 this is a practical fix for the problem:

sudo ln -s /usr/share/kde4/servicetypes/konqpopupmenuplugin.desktop /usr/share/kservicetypes5/

How come this isn't fixed in Kubuntu yet? KDE applied a fix on 2015-10-06.
