The Unarchiver, part 2 (402)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2011-08-31 12:54 ID:EvuKrlQD [Del]

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!

Apple has removed this feature from apps in the App Store. You will have to get the legacy version to use it.

Hello.. Why can't I drag and drop folders that contain archives to The Unarchiver? I know that a folder itself isn't considered an "archive" but shouldn't it be able to just LOOK inside the folder, and then do it's task?

this software is NEAR perfect... NEAR

plz help me out here.. thanks

The App works perfectly fine. But it will be nice if you can update the UI and icon set to match with OS X Yosemite. Many thanks to developers.

396 Name: Jan : 2014-11-25 23:32 ID:XE8TNx6w [Del]

What I did to solve the selection problem, was to go to http://unarchiver.c3.cx/unarchiver and download the not App Store version.
If you run that one, you can select all the formats.
After selecting and closing the program, I threw the downloaded version in the trash, and the already installed App Store one had all the formats selected.

In short :
Doenload the standalone one, use that to select all the formats and throw it away after that.

397 Name: Masa : 2014-12-01 09:35 ID:aC6LaYRC [Del]

I got strange things with The Unarchiver.

The apps works perfectlly except with iWork files. If I unzip .zip files including iWork files such as .pages .numbers .key which were zipped with OS X built in Compress, iWork cannot open the unzipped files.

iWork shows '"xxxxx.pages" can't be opened' error.

This is very strange. This happens always and only with iWork files on my Mac.

Does this happen to anybody?

Xee, part 2 (579)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2009-07-22 10:34 ID:J9qvJKxH [Del]

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.

This is the first time I've seen a futaba board used as an official support board.

Anyway, I installed xee from brew and was hoping it'd have command line functionality, like feh on linux. xee, Xee, or open -a Xee didn't do anything for me. Know any great lightweight apps that work like feh?

So I’ve turned off the status bar, but when I enter and then exit full screen mode, the status bar is back. Can’t be intentional, can it?

As per 486, is there a chance that a toggle-able Fit on Screen and Actual Size will come back, at least as an option? Especially since they now use different modifiers (command and shift). I personally thought the behaviour in Xee 2 was much more useful.

577 Name: Dan : 2015-02-25 07:14 ID:t6sK2Din [Del]

Is there a way to batch rotate files. If I have a folder say with 50
Pictures I want rotated 180 clockwise could they be batch rotated and saved without doing each individually?

579 Name: Tao : 2015-03-01 14:30 ID:nzdtPeTD [Del]

Running Xee on 5K Imac, it seems that the images are displayed at a 1/4 of the resolution. Meaning that pixels can be seen in the image.

The Archive Browser (156)

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.

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....

151 Name: Cosmin : 2014-11-02 15:26 ID:eI1wDfAe [Del]

Hello, I am unable to select other types of archives from the menu, only those default. And this in Yosemite.

152 Name: Keith : 2014-11-08 19:57 ID:QOn+/V2z [Del]

Would you please recommend a method for getting a non-app store license code for those who purchased the app in App Store?

just want to change from sandbox to non-sandbox, but buy another license?

The Archive Browser asks for permission to search the download folder for other parts every time I use it. Isn't it supposed to remember this after the first time?

for a small one, just host it yourself. most small boards don't get more than 2-3 unique visitors in a month if you don't count spambots.

Mac OS X screen savers (363)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2005-06-16 19:23 ID:/DCn4yVC [Del]

Not to be confused with the Mac OS X widgets thread, this is the Mac OS X screen savers thread (this one's even more useless!).

So, way back in the day, I made some screen savers for the Amiga named "LotsaBlankers". Later on, I ported some of them to Windows, and created some new ones, but I never managed to make a stable and functional enough screen saver under Windows that I'd feel like releasing it. But now that I've got Mac OS X, I've started porting some of this old code over, since making screen savers for OS X is pretty easy and fun. First one I've got running is this one:


It's based on the work presented on this site, http://escherdroste.math.leidenuniv.nl/, and it is liable to BLOW YOUR MIND, MAAAAN. I've been too lazy to figure out how to make a preferences GUI for it yet, so even though the code supports all the possible different transformations of the image (Some listed here: http://escherdroste.math.leidenuniv.nl/index.php?menu=im&sub=escher), you can't actually pick which one you want yet.

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

Hmm, I'll have to look into it once I get Mavericks.

355 Name: rob : 2013-10-25 16:41 ID:wJ2MP0JP [Del]

same problem on LotsaSnow when is check "snow falling on the desktop"

356 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2013-11-09 17:26 ID:/tup2R8c [Del]

All right, I managed to find a workaround for the new silly behaviours in Mavericks. It's not perfect, though, the screen will quickly flash black before the screensaver activates. Unfortunately, there appears to be no way around this other than if Apple fixes Mavericks.

So there are new versions of LotsaWater and LotsaSnow, and while LotsaEscher had no issues with this, I fixed some old bugs there too so there's a new version of that too:

multi-monitor has a problem,when I use custom function , if one's screen resolution is not the same as the other one, the side of the big one will display black colour.
So , could we set two pictures for each other for different resolution?
My osx ver is 10.9

359 Name: Painted Turtle : 2013-11-12 16:22 ID:HOHww/P0 [Del]

Please update the screen savers pages with the minimum requirements for each release. (OS versions and Intel vs PPC)

I volunteer to service donated Macs for benevolent causes around the world and here at home. We often get older units, so I want to know which version I can install where.


360 Name: Vince357 : 2013-12-01 23:33 ID:txEYAhk/ [Del]

As tangoldduck said, under OSX 10.9, there is a prob on multi-monitor macs: my iMac (resolution 2560x1440) runs lotawater as expected, but the second monitor (1440x900) doesn't.
But, when I just preview the screensaver, both monitors display separated monitors screenshots as expected.
When the app is auto launched, problem occurs.
Of course, it only happens when the 'desktop snapshot' is seleceted.

LotsaWater has problems with multiple monitors and Mavericks 10.9.1. One monitor is normal, the other is black. Needs separate screenshot for each monitor. My monitor resolutions are 1650x1080 normal & 1280x1024 black.

363 Name: Ben : 2015-01-12 14:24 ID:yh8ZYwWs [Del]

Having same multi screen issues as others. Black screen on all monitors except primary monitor. I hope you get around to fixing this :)
