file-roller appears to be completely broken. First i created a new
archive. After clicking the New button and entering a filename, the
window didn't change at all. OK, maybe you're supposed to use
drag-n-drop to add files. So i opened a rox window and dragged a file
into the big empty area that i supposed would be a list of the
archive's contents. Then it just sat there, eating 100% cpu, to a
naive user it had frozen.
I went to the file-roller web page
(http://fileroller.sourceforge.net/) to see how it's supposed to work.
I see from the screenshots that it is more broken than i thought.
When you start the program the large grey area is supposed to be a
mini-file-manager showing the files in the current directory. Not
even that much works in the NetBSD package.
Try to do anything at all with it.
