Same here in Kubuntu 12.10 x64 after upgrade from 12.04 on all off my PCs.

problem is solved in krusader beta3 .
I have read on some forum that it has been intentionally commented within compilation because there has been bug in it within open the zip file.

Changed in krusader (Ubuntu):
status: Confirmed → Fix Committed

I use this package, until an update is available on the official sources:

woks in quantal (12.10) too.

Workaround for me was installing krusader package from precise and forcing this version

Please release the latest krusader-2.4.0-beta3.tar.bz2 version.

This bug also applies to a fully upgraded 13.04. Please upgrade krusader.

Now Nautilus is completely borked in 13.04 we need a decent two pane file-manager for Ubuntu, but this bug is nasty.
Please update

Made my own deb from 2.4.0.beta3 which solved the `krarc` problem.

How to:
0 Uninstall Krusader
1 download source from
2 cd krusader-2.4.0-beta3
3 cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/ -DQT_INCLUDES=/usr/share/qt4/include
4 make
5 sudo checkinstall

Don´t forget in step 5 to set version on 3 instead of beta3, only digits are allowed in versions in debs nowadays.

Please give us an example of the line

3 cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/ -DQT_INCLUDES=/usr/share/qt4/include

in order to understand it.

Thank you!

I tried the recipe from #10, which is derived from the Krusader documentation at However, step 3 fails with errors from cmake. It would be fine to get a new version in the repositories - thank you!

@ Dobrai:
- cmake A cross-platform, open-source make system

 is the location where Krusader will be installed with the make command.
 An other example is: -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PRFIX=/opt/krusader
 to install the compiled Krusader in an other directory to not overwrite
 the Krusader version installed by your package manager.
@Christian. Do you have cmake installed? It isn't by default.

BTW in the new version, read support for krarc is enabled, write support can be enabled but is buggy

Please write us all of the steps using a real example. Thank you!

I've went back to Ubuntu 12.04 and the issue finally is resolved.

Could you put latest krusader-2.4.0-beta3 to the ubuntu standard reposotories?

@Christian Hildmann: cmake probably complains about missing dependencies needed for compilation. You can get those using:

sudo apt-get build-dep krusader

and then continue with step 3 from comment #10

@Dobrai It is a real example.
But before you start check if you have these installed::
sudo apt-get build-dep krusader
sudo apt-get install cmake checkinstall

When you install the produced deb you'll probably get a warning message that the package is of bad quality. You can ignore that.

#17 Yes please.

BTW I experience unexpected closes/crashes of Krusader after the latest KDE updates of this week. It just crashes after pressing ESC or some other keys.

Manually installing package with beta3 from Ubuntu Saucy - solves this issue. Please backport it to previous versions of Ubuntu!
