Bug Description

First time using file roller to compress, IIRC. Steps:
Open file roller. New archive. Name = DebugDat. Format = 7z OR Zip OR tar.gz OR (others)
Go to add files, click anything on desktop, add files icon greyed out. Tried with other archive formats, same. Tried with various filetypes, same. Added various options in file roller's install options in package manager, no difference.

Any ideas? v3.10.2.1 very fresh xubuntu 14.04 install.

Thanks.

Worked fine in xarchiver & I don't anticipate the files are the problem. Unless it's supposed to run as root or something, and not getting called properly, but I'm running from the system menu...
