Want to tar.gz a file, right click on it in the file manager, create tar.gz file, all done.

If I select create archive it opens up the archiver window but errors out when creating the tar.gz archive, error message box is empty. With tar.bz2 it creates the archive, gives a blank error message and the archive is unaccessible.

Anyone else seeing this?

As an update to this I find that if I double-click on an existing archive in thunar it doesn't open. What I did notice was excessive disk activity though.

So looking at the processes running I found the main process and also other spawned processes which were being created, then disppearing with more processes created to replace them. Sort of thing!

So I could check a process, say 12230 with ps aux, then immediately do another ps aux and 12230 is gone but the same command is now being run as 12239...... ad infinitum. Only stops when I kill the primary process, say 10057.

Hope that's clear  Grin
