Bug Description

Binary package hint: evince

Today, I suddenly can't read any of my comicbook archives anymore. I have tried several .cbz and .cbr archives, but I get a Permission Denied warning on everyone. I've checked the file permissions and there's no reason why they can't be opened.
In order to double check, I installed qcomicbook and it was able to read them just fine. Apparently something has regressed in Evince.

Okay, I moved one of the comic archives to my home folder and tried opening it from there. I don't get a permission denied warning, instead i get this:
Unable to open document:
File type Zip archive (application/x-zip) is not supported.

It seems that someone removed compressed archive support in Evince.
