Bug Description

To reproduce in pcmanfm in prefrences in the advanced tab make sure archive integration is set to file-roller then right click on a file in pcmanfm and select compress from the context menu and the entry for inputing a password on the archive is grayed out not allowing you to create an archive. However as in screenshot I could not add a password to the archive.

  Installed: 3.14.2-0ubuntu5
  Candidate: 3.14.2-0ubuntu5
  Version table:
 *** 3.14.2-0ubuntu5 0

        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Description: Ubuntu Vivid Vervet (development branch)
Release: 15.04

I expected if an option to add a password to a compressed archive is on my screen to actually enter a password for it. Instead I cannot create a password protected archive.
