Bug Description

Ubuntu Gnome - 14.04 dev release - 20131217.

Have two '.tar.gz' files in my home folder for extraction.

Right click on one and use 'Extract Here' and all is fine. Right after I go to the second file and peform the same action of 'Extract Here', the file will not extract. If you then attempt it again, it will extract.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. The issue you are reporting is an upstream one and it would be nice if somebody having it could send the bug to the developers of the software by following the instructions at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Upstream/GNOME. If you have done so, please tell us the number of the upstream bug (or the link), so we can add a bugwatch that will inform us about its status. Thanks in advance.

Hi and thanks for reporting :)

The Title says: "'Extract Here' will work on first file but not a second " while on the description, it says: "Right click on one and use 'Extract Here' and all is fine. Right after I go to the second file and peform the same action of 'Extract Here', the file will not extract. If you then attempt it again, it will extract."

So, I think you mean it will 'not' do anything on the 'second file' as the first attempt to extract but will work on the second 'attempt' to extract the second file?

By the way, I just tested File Roller 3.4.1 on Xubuntu Release 12.04 (precise) 64-bit - Kernel Linux 3.2.0-58-generic and it works like a charm from the very first attempt.

I will try to do the same on my Virtual Machine with the latest Ubuntu GNOME Trusty update and report back :)

I have indeed read and 'your' bug or to be more accurate the tile of the bug and the description are not similar unless I am missing something. And, as I said, I will check that on Trusty and report bug. I don't need anyone to tell me to read carefully :)

While I respect any valid input. All you are doing currently is spamming this bug report and going over old ground.

Ubuntu GNOME Trusty Tahr amd64 - 3.13.0-3-generic - fully updated - running on virtual machine. Here is what is happening:

1- Created 4 '.tar.gz' files : [1.tar.gz, 2.tar.gz, 3.tar.gz and 4.tar.gz].
2- Compress works perfectly without any problem.
3- I did a Right Click on 1.tar.gz File and chose 'Extract Here' and it worked perfectly.
4- I did a Right Click on 2.tar.gz File and chose 'Extract Here' and it did 'not' work.
5- Right Click on 3.tar.gz File and Chose 'Extract Here' and it worked perfectly.
6- Right Click on 4.tar.gz File and chose 'Extract Here' and it did 'not' work.
7- I did repeat the above steps from 1-6 and it gave me the exact same result.
8- Kindly see the attached screenshot.

If you require anything else to include, kindly let me know :)

Thank you!
