OS X Yosemite (10.10) isn't supported (5)

1 Name: usingsystem8 : 2014-08-20 17:29 ID:LrWOVcBM [Del]

The Unarchiver doesn't support OS X Yosemite now.
You can't change The Unarchiver settings on OS X Yosemite.
The checkboxes doesn't react even if you click them.

2 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2014-10-18 11:31 ID:+fACdyNn [Del]

Apple has helpfully removed this feature. You will need the legacy version that is not sandboxed to do this.

3 Name: thinkfree : 2014-10-21 05:49 ID:KNBjWp88 [Del]

Is there any chance that you update the MAS version to fully support Yosemite?

Or do we have to download it separately from now on?

4 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2014-10-24 11:53 ID:Heaven [Del]

Oh, I already have. Once again you can thank Apple and the App Store. They'll release it some day, when they feel like it.

5 Name: thinkfree : 2014-10-24 13:53 ID:n8chOq1h [Del]

Thats great news. Thanks for the great support.
This app is just awesome, it never lets me down.

I'll donate a little via paypal when apple releases it. Thanks a lot for your work and time!

The Archive Browser (150)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2012-03-20 18:00 ID:rFsOye/G [Del]

So, along with the release of The Unarchiver 3.0 comes another new things: The Archive Browser. This is the often-requested version that lets you browse archives and preview their contents before extracting. However, since this is not a program that I personally need, this one will actually cost a few dollars. Buy it if this is what you really need, or buy it if you want to support the development of The Unarchiver!


For now, bug reports and feature requests can go on the The Unarchiver bug tracker:


It is much better to post them there than in this thread, because I tend to forget things that are not on the bug tracker.

When I access kareha.pl through a web browser, it just shows the source code. If I run the command "perl kareha.pl" it gives me and index file, when I go to that, it's just a static page. I'm a noob when it comes to this, can anyone help?

Hi, I have just purchased the 'The Archive Browser' app from AppStore for my OS X Yosemite.

When I click on the app preference, I cannot select the file association even I click the "select all" or "deselect all" the association settings do not change.

How can I solve this?

147 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2014-10-19 01:30 ID:hTSFHVVr [Del]


You can't. Apple has permanently disabled this feature in the App Store. You either have to do it by hand in The Finder using Get Info, or use the non-App Store version.

It is GREAT that the software will UNARCHIVE files. BUT, can it ARCHIVE files, that is, will it also COMPRESS files? Sorry to ask such a dumb question... If it will not (Uncompress and Compress), can you recommend something that does BOTH well... Thanks....

The Wakaba and Kareha support thread, part 3 (482)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2011-01-07 09:57 ID:eLRTX7Vk [Del]

This thread is for all your simple questions about installing and running Wakaba or Kareha, that just require quick answers. Please don't create new threads for issues like that, post them in here instead.

Before posting, check that the question has not already been answered in this thread, or in the previous two threads:

Also check the documentation: http://wakaba.c3.cx/docs/docs.html

There is also a setup guide by Anon: http://wiki.iiichan.net/index.php?title=Wakaba_and_Kareha_Setup_Guide

What's your setup like? That doesn't look like an nginx error message so it has to be apache or lighttpd. Do you also get this error when you click on "Last 50 posts"?

I'm using Wakaba. I basically 775'd all the .pl files in the folder's index. Maybe I had to do it wall the files or something?

I'm using wakaba and have a problem with my captcha.

Does anyone else have a problem with Captcha not automatically reloading? After I post, I cannot post again without manually reloading the page and getting a new captcha. If I don't do a manual reload, the captcha stays the same and gives me an error when I try to post again. Is this a browser issue, or something else? I've tried it in Chrome and Firefox, and neither auto-reload the captcha after a post, but the browser does seem to reload because the image and text appear on the page automatically, I just get the same captcha code.

Say I have a persistent version of Kareha. Would caching the log in an array and creating a hash of references to each row in the log with MD5 hashes or IP addresses as keys be an easy to squeeze more performance out of Kareha? If I understand correctly, the hash values shouldn't take up too much extra memory since they're refs, and the array itself shouldn't be any bigger than it would be in plain CGI Kareha. Is there anything I'm missing or misunderstanding?

480 Name: Anonymous : 2014-09-26 11:47 ID:K2mFT8RG [Del]

I have latest version of kareha installed and it takes 2 clicks of the preview button to initiate preview, and in chrome and Safari the default markup is blank with an " undefined " under it until you pick one

481 Name: Anonymous : 2014-09-26 13:24 ID:Heaven [Del]

Not sure about the 2 clicks thing but the undefined thing is fixed in https://github.com/marlencrabapple/kareha-psgi/commit/40149edc3f1a7cb9a9f501311b4fe703df415301. Should work in vanilla Kareha verbatim.

This thread is for questions and discussion about Xee. Before posting, check that the question has not already been answered in this thread, or in the previous thread: http://wakaba.c3.cx/sup/kareha.pl/1122405906/

There is also a bug tracker for Xee here: http://code.google.com/p/xee/issues/list

If you have a bug to report, it is better to post it on the bug tracker if you can, so it will not be forgotten.

545 Name: Jo : 2014-02-27 07:07 ID:7jvgUvbk [Del]

I have a bought version of Xee (not from the app store) and have a couple of requests.

1) I would love a way to jump straight to a specific photo by number. I have had situations where a Xee crashed, or I logged out, and I wanted to go to a specific photo by number (i.e. 1243 of 7000) in a folder but there seems no way.

2) A "check for updates" button would be great.

Is there a way to browse between .zip files?

I read comics that are archived as .zip files and it'd be nice if I could just directly move to the next .zip file in the directory after I've gotten to the last image instead of having to open it separately.

I'm having an issue with running Kareha on Nginx. I've setup Nginx to run Perl scripts and the board seems to load up perfectly fine when I access the index. But when I try and access any thread I post, the thread page takes me to 404. Although, when I try and access that thread page via the /res/ directory, it works perfectly again.

Is there something I missed with the perl configuration that's not letting kareha.pl run properly or maybe a workaround to make the thread links use the /res/ directory rather than the kareha.pl script?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

551 Name: Anonymous : 2014-09-04 08:11 ID:cX1yvLZD [Del]

I had trouble getting nginx and kareha to play together nicely in the past too, but I managed to "fix" it a while ago after modifying kareha to use PSGI instead of CGI (https://github.com/marlencrabapple/kareha-psgi). Not sure if that was the reason it suddenly started working, but it just happened to make a difference on my end.

Just in case that wasn't the reason why it started working, try using a location directive like location ~ (admin|kareha|captcha).pl { ... } when passing stuff to fcgiwrap.

552 Name: Anonymous : 2014-09-04 08:14 ID:Heaven [Del]

Oh, and my setup involves serving the script with starman to localhost and using proxy_pass with the location directive in >>551 to pass the requests from nginx to the script.

Xee 3.4 has been released, with mostly bugfixes, especially for Yosemite.


  • Fixed crashing on startup on Yosemite.
  • Fixed issues with full screen mode on Yosemite.
  • Fixed some issues with the JPG, PNG and GIF loaders.
  • Fixed incorrect scaling of transparent images.
  • Fixed discrete GPU usage flag.
  • Add support for three finger swipe for browsing images, if enabled in OS X.

Note: If you are having problems with images not showing properly on older Macs in this version, set the visual quality to a lower setting in View -> Scaling Quality!

As the previous thread filled up, here is part 2 of the The Unarchiver thread.

It is much better to post bugs on the bug tracker, rather than in this thread! Anything posted on the bug tracker has much less chance of being forgotten by me!

So, post bugs here: http://code.google.com/p/theunarchiver/issues/list

Also, remember that if you post a bug about a file that is not work, you must also post the file itself, or else there is nothing I can do about it!

383 Name: Dave : 2014-10-08 11:10 ID:Fi2OcDcM [Del]

Is there a simple way to make unarchiver do the unpacking in the current directory (where the archive is found)? I want this most of the time and it is a pain having to navigate there manually or choose the default and then go searching for the unpacked files.

386 Name: Anonymous : 2014-10-13 14:34 ID:TR8Sw+ru [Del]

For RAR format, the "Support level" "Full" is misleading if not false because there is not support for RAR 5.0. I would vote to implement the support but please in the meantime update the Supported formats page for accuracy.

Archives.app (34)

Well, another addition to the The Unarchiver family of programs has been released: Archives for iOS.

It is available here: http://itunes.apple.com/app/archives/id562790811?ls=1&mt=8
And the homepage is here: http://archives.c3.cx/

It's much like The Archive Browser, but for iOS. It lets you browse and preview the contents of archives on the iPhone and iPad, and lets you open files in other apps if you have any installed that handle a particular file type.

If there are bug reports or feature requests, post them on the The Unarchiver bug tracker: http://code.google.com/p/theunarchiver/issues/list

(It's better to post them there than in this thread, because if they are posted in here I might forget about them.)

Since I'm not entirely sure how people will want to use this program, I was thinking of putting up some possible improvements I could make, and let people say which one says good on the bug tracker. I will post again once I have that set up.

I forgot to announce it earlier, but 1.4 is out, with mostly the same fixes as the earlier The Unarchiver release:

  • Added support for XIP files.
  • Fixed some crashes and unsupported files for RAR.
  • Better support for RAR Mac OS X SFX files.
  • Fixed crashes for certain CAB and PDF files.
  • Added support for comments in Amiga LhA files.

Changes are:

  • Updated visual design for iOS 7.
  • Add support for PMA files.
  • Better support for broken Zip files.
  • Fix bugs in handling of NSIS and MSI files.

print "Content-Type: text/html\n\n";
print "<html><body><h1>Perl is working!</h1></body></html>";

When I attempt to access the .pl, any of them, my browsers want to download the file and thats it. I am assuming that somehow I am flubbing up the executable, but I haven't found any info yet.

else: check that you are allowed to perl (check the host's website (maybe you'll find something in the FAQ or packet options), maybe send the support an email); check perl dir is correct

【Wakaba】 Admin tripcodes -ATTEMPT- (16)

1 Name: Anonymous : 2008-03-05 12:29 ID:5DY64FJB [Del]

So I decided to try my luck getting Admin tripcodes to work with Wakaba.

After line 139 in futaba_style.pl add:

<if $email><if $name eq 'admname'><if $trip eq 'admtrip'><span class="admin"><a href="<var $email>"><var $name><var $trip> [Admin]</a></span></if></if></if>
<if !$email><if $name eq 'admname'><if $trip eq 'admtrip'><span class="admin"><var $name><var $trip> [Admin]</span></if></if></if>

Replace admname with Admin's name.
Replace admtrip with Admin's output tripcode including the trip characters ('!' by default).
You can remove <var $trip> from both lines and simply have it so that it shows admname [Admin]
For multiple admins, simply repeat the code above onto the very next line.

Go into your \css\ folder and edit the css styles.

Post too long. Click to view the whole post or the thread page.

It's not hard to add sticky, permasage and close options to Wakaba, if anything it's harder to add new features to Kareha. Capcodes are useful for having a mod post to make warnings, etc in threads (or just wanting to be faggy and posting with colours). Should be easy to add as well.

8 Name: Anonymous : 2008-03-18 17:49 ID:Heaven [Del]

I've found both scripts to be quite flexible in their own ways. It does largely depend on what sorts of things you're trying to do with them, though.

Right? I was thinking that if a new version of wakaba might have been released since 2008, line 139 might have changed.

Would appreciate any help, thanks! :)

Any chance you could update this to work with data from a database?

E.g. wakaba_staff

num - 1
name - Admin
tripcode - !4uce84

And loop through each row until it finds a match? It would be great for multiple admins, and no need to make file edits each time. :)

14 Name: Anonymous : 2011-11-07 11:29 ID:Heaven [Del]

I've never understood what's so hard about adding cap codes... Its just a few lines in wakaba.pl, and nothing more. Are you guys trying to get it working outside of the manager post section?
