#50 new defect

Still bugs in ZIP decompression

Reported by: db Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: Future ideas
Component: p7zip Version: All
Keywords: zip, decompression, 1.0.1 Cc:

Description

After the Keka 1.0.1 update I decompressed a ZIP archive that is attached to this ticket. ZIP decompression still creates useless 0.0 KB big files. Try it with the Mac OSX included unarchiver on the same archive and see the valid decompressed files (Icons).

My machine runs at OSX 10.6.8

Since Keka uses p7zip to compress/extract ZIP files, this is more a bug in p7zip than in Keka. p7zip (or 7-zip) does not care about the Mac metadata, that's why your folders with customized icons appear as folders with an empty file inside called "Icon".
You can create a ticket in p7zip or 7-zip projects.

Using another binary or implement another method to do ZIP files is another solution. This is in the milestone, but needs lots of effort and time.

Attached another example file. This time is not metadata, but a "PostScript? Type 1 outline font" and a "Font Suitcase", sended by Lasse.

Internal OS X 10.8 archive utility worked fine.
