Fix Released

Bug Description

1) lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu Trusty Tahr (development branch)
Release: 14.04

2) apt-cache policy file-roller
  Version table:
 *** 0
        500 trusty/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

3) What is expected to happen at a terminal:
cd ~/Desktop && wget && file-roller -h xubuntu-12.04.3-desktop-amd64.iso

or attempts to extract via secondary clicking the file -> Extract Here it would do so.

4) What happens instead is one receives in a terminal:
GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NotSupported: Application does not handle command line arguments

WORKAROUND: sudo file-roller -h xubuntu-12.04.3-desktop-amd64.iso
