We've just added this to Ark Linux -- Ark Linux users can just "apt-get install kio-p7zip", users of other rpm based distributions might want to try our RPMs at http://arklinux.osuosl.org/dockyard-devel/i586/kio-p7zip-0.3.1-1ark.i586.rpm http://arklinux.osuosl.org/dockyard-devel/SRPMS/kio-p7zip-0.3.1-1ark.src.rpm

Excellent work. It'd be great to see it ported to the 7zip library. As you stated, relying on an executable has some serious drawbacks.

I'm just wondering why you named the KIO slave "p7zip:/". Wouldn't "7zip:/" or "7z:/" make a lot more sense? p7zip is just the name of the 7zip port to Linux, and really has nothing to do with the file format itself.

Anyway, that's just a suggestion. Keep up the good work.

Oh, and have you considered adding support to open .tar.7z files in a single step?

It supports all the archive types that 7zip does, not just 7zip's own format.

Sorry, but this kioslave is far from ready.
I should to rewrite the kioslave to use the 7-zip library directly instead using the 7za program and this will take some time.
Using the 7za program leads to some limitations.

Sorry, but kio_p7zip doesn't work. I've created an rpm for openSUSE, which ships with KDE 3.4.2.

I get a dialog and it asks me wether to save or open it with another application.

Hi

I would like to create a KIO too, but I don't find any _good_ documentation. I found http://www.heise.de/ct/english/01/05/242/ but it's not enough.
Where is my dream ? :p Or where can I find a small KIO showing only two folders for instance, in order to work with a good base ?

Thanks...

The screenshots are from CVS version of konqueror.
Nice. Archives are shown like directories.
