Bug Description

Binary package hint: file-roller

file-roller 2.17.5-0ubuntu1
unace-nonfree 1:3.6.8-0ubuntu2

file-roller doesn't seem to cope well with Feisty's unace-nonfree. When I'm trying to open an .ace archive with file-roller, unrar-nonfree process starts to peg cpu and file-roller's progress bar just shuffles around, but nothing else happens.
I haven't had problems with other (exotic/nonfree) archive formats.

I'm able to extract the archive using command line interface though.

This is still true for Gutsy and File Roller 2.20.0. But you can use the free unace instead, which should support most of the ace archives.

OK thanks for this answer, I'll use the Free version now !
