Bug Description

Binary package hint: file-roller

I'm using file-roller 2.23.92-0ubuntu1 and when using the "extract here" function from nautilus in a NTFS partition, the extraction fails with a popup window telling me a bunch of "cannot utime" errors.
The extraction instead works fine using the normal file roller window: even if the errors are displayed, at least the files are extracted.

I added hundredpapercuts because I think that extracting files is a common operation, and most users have a ntfs-3g partition

this can be fixed ignoring permisions on that drive....

I think also, adding an option to automount the drive would help (add to fstab only)

I've attached my fstab, hopping to help.

user does not help if the partition is automounted: solution not valid
for a multiuser environment

Thank you for bringing this bug to our attention. Unfortunately a paper cut should be a small usability issue that affects many people and is quick and easy to fix. I'm afraid this bug can't be addressed as part of this project.
A paper cut is a minor usability annoyance that an average user would encounter on his/her first day of using a new installation of Ubuntu 9.10
