arclite - 7-Zip backed plug-in for handling archives

Post by przemoc » Sat 05 Mar, 2011 13:24

arclite is the default plug-in for handling archives in Far2.
That's why it deserves its own thread in English part of the forum.

If I select many archives, use Shift-F2 and confirm, then I'm getting later the same dialog for each archive, even though obviously I want to unpack them to the same place with same settings. It's really inconvenient. 7-zip alternative does not have this problem, but it's much worse in displaying progress, so I want to stay with arclite, also because it's kind of more "official" Far plugin. Can this behavior be changed somehow or is there any known workaround?

The answer to the same question in the Russian-language thread was to use the plugin menu instead of ShiftF2.

It works. Thanks, HaRT. Are there any plans to fix Shift-F2 in this regard? Or invoking extracting-related dialog per file in this method won't be changed for some reason?

As per author's answer, it's caused by the way Far communicates with archive plugins.

arclite: How to put the path of passive panel...

Post by Mauro72 » Tue 31 May, 2011 02:34

This is the question:
When extract an archive file (shift f2) the dialog put automatically the passive panel path (Excellent),
but when i add files to archive (shift f1) the dialog only put the name of file under cursor. Why ?
Will be great if the dialogs put like "extract (shift f2)" the passive panel path, so the files to archive
are in one panel and the result file archive is in the other panel.
Or any shortcut to put the passive panel path in the dialog?
Any help?
Thanks.

Ctrl-Shift-]
and a macro on ShiftF1 for the path to be inserted automatically.

Hello, I have problem with compressing files. When I select them and press Shift+F1, arclite window is too big, so I cannot see bottom of it.

Either increase your console window size via its Properties|Layout (or via AltF9) or decrease the font size.

I really don't like arclite, so I put MultiArc back. :)

Or with the keyboard: CtrlF5, then arrows, then Enter.

How to prevent arclite from opening certain files?

Post by jdarias » Mon 26 Sep, 2011 16:45

If i press enter on a .doc file or an openoffice file, arclite would open them, instead of the application to edit them (word or openoffice)
How can i prevent this behavior?
I´ve tried adding *.odt,*.doc to the disable archive formats in the arclite configuration dialog, but the behavior persists.

EDIT: NVM. The option to use is "exclude files matching mask". My bad.

Is there a way to configure arclite to use external programs to read/create other archive types (e.g. create .RAR)?
If not, is there a MultiArc version for FAR3?
If not, is there a arclite alternative for FAR3?
If not, then I guess FAR ("File and ARchive manager") should be renamed to "File and few not-really-popular-archive-formats manager"

I'm a years-long fan and daily user of FAR, but if FAR3 will be limited to arclite only, I'll stay with FAR2... I have quite many RAR archives (often modified), some ancient JAR stuff (from ARJ maker, the JAR has a fantastic 'chapter' feature not found in other archivers), some custom archiver used for storage in some funny system, etc. I cannot access some and I cannot modify any of them with arclite... facepalm2
