The Unarchiver, part 2 (438)

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!

Is there any documentation available for using the XADMaster framework in another project to handle archives?

Specifically, the later versions changed how XADArchiveParserDelegate is handled and the @protocol statement is removed in the latest version's headers. It was previously there in v3.3.

I can't find any reference to using it in the app source code itself but another open source project does and now fails with ""Cannot find protocol declaration for 'XADArchiveParserDelegate'".

Hello I would love to see the ability to create Base64 encoded HTML's from HTMLZ.

I use Calibre to convert ePub's to HTMLZ, thats the best what Calibre can do. Then I use the Unarchiver to unzip the HTMLZ to HTML. And here you have to spring in. For now the Unarchiver creates the HTML file and a folder with the pictures. With the Base64 encode it is possible to create HTML files with inline images.

This would be a huge step in my workflow.

For informations see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Base64 and other relevant websites.

Been using Unarchiver opening zipped DSF files with no problems. But now, when I open a file, the audio files are there, but NO metadata at all.

Any ideas why or what to do?

Currently the unArchiver will ignore the same file queued additional times. As if the user were to keep opening the archive from Finder. It's already in the queue so it's ignored.

How about with multipart archives, do the same thing, so that when working with scripting that would essentially do the same thing as opening all the parts. the unArvchiver already parses for multipart archives- in that you can open any one part and it will start at part1 regardless.

Can this somehow go through the same check that it's doing on multiple instances of a single file?

This would allow for drag and drop of the whole download directory and have each archive processed once, instead of adding to the queue once for each part. As it is now, the user has to individually select one part from each set and open/drop that on the icon to avoid queueing multi-part archives multiple times.

Making a rule for the automator to only act on the file entry if the name ends in either *.rar or *.part1.rar .. would be ridiculously nasty. Likewise, looking for *n.rar where n is a number would mean the most common naming scheme on a file would cause it to be ignored.

It's supposed to already do that, I think. Doesn't it?

437 Name: tdiaz : 2016-02-07 21:13 ID:7QD14duy (Image: 924x280 png, 94 kb) [Del]

That's what I'm saying, it says it's fixed in the bug entry. But- selecting all segments of the multi-part, opening- and the queue has one for each part.

If there were a preference to overwrite on the same name this wouldn't suck nearly as much, other than wasted time.

But thats only if it's not set to move the archive to trash after processing. Then of course, it will get an error on the subsequent extractions, halting the whole process.

Verified that I am using the latest download, 3.10.1.

438 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2016-02-07 23:03 ID:Heaven [Del]

I suggest filing a new bug for it, so I'll remember to look at it when I get around to the next update.

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.

Apparently Sparkle in 3.5 was having trouble updating. I updated it, and released a new 3.5.1 (same version number) which should work better.

Hopefully updating will work now, but you have to update to 3.5.1 manually first if you are having problems.

I just registered Xee3.
In general the program works, but on your Webpage you present some previews where there are shown more pictures in the screen.
I only get one picture on the screen and by scrolling I see the other pictures, but never more. How can I change that ?
Also the menu option "Frames" remains grey and doesn't work.
What is the problem ?

Pictures from other folders will open in new windows.

This is only for files that include more than one picture. If you don't have any of those, you can ignore this.

It would be great to have an option which enables/disables the pixel smoothing when zooming beyond 100%. In some cases I find useful to see the actual pixels of the image, 'magnified' (see image, 'Normal zoom'). Thanks

Xee 2 is pretty epic.

609 Name: Karsten : 2016-02-07 20:52 ID:d2YW+s2U [Del]

In a previous version I could delete images with the DEL key and Xee would ask me to confirm this, so I would have to hit ENTER to delete. This was my preferred workflow.

With the current version I have also set the DEL key to delete images (without the command key) but now they are deleted immediately, without Xee asking for confirmation. How do I set the current version to ask for confirmation first?

The Wakaba and Kareha support thread, part 3 (506)

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:

For some reason, my Wakaba installation has decided to stop linking thumbnails to the database, or something. Basically, when an image is posted, a thumbnail is generated and placed in the thumb directory, as expected. However, it doesn't display on the board, and instead only shows the "No thumbnail" text. When I do an SQL dump, I notice that the field for where the thumbnail file name would be is simply blank for each entry.

I am using shared hosting (Lithium Hosting), and I really don't know what kind of thumbnailing software they have installed. It's simply worked up until now. With that in mind, anyone know why this would be happening?

Mac OS X widgets (91)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2005-06-09 18:25 ID:zkchdMA4 [Del]

So, I recently got a Mac, and being as enamored with Javascript as I am, of course I started making myself some Dashboard widgets. I just finished the first one:


It's an iTunes alarm clock. It'll just start iTunes playing a playlist you pick at a given time, slowly fading up the volume. It should be pretty obvious how to use it.

The alarm will recover after a restart. If the widget wasn't running at the time of an earlier set alarm, it will trigger immediately. At the moment, it can't schedule a power-up for wake from sleep for your Mac. I haven't quite figured out how to do that, but if anyone wants it, I'll find out and add it.

Needless to say, don't gamble your job or academic career on such relatively untested software as this. It's woken me up a couple of times, but I make no gurantees. Keep a spare alarm until any possible bugs have been shaken out.

Laughing man widget is kinda broke in Leopard. The text only shows up half the time.

Confirming this, every once in a while the text simply disappears and requires a refresh in order to get it working again. It floods the system log with "CGPathAddArc: invalid value for start or end angle" when the text disappears.

The Shiny Orb is a cool useless widget, indeed XD. If you accept suggestions for new widgets, I think that it's natural evolution is to become a "Tesla ball" or plasma ball or whatever the name is. I'm trying to say something like this: http://flickr.com/photos/23079381@N00/2432714569/

That would be cooler and equally useless!, it's a win/win!. Thanks for the Orb in any case, and for the screensavers and... well, everything on this web. You're The Man.

500 Internal Server Error (413)

Since 500 Internal Server Errors aren't ever really caused by Wakaba or Kareha themselves, but are still a big problem for lots of people, I'm setting up this thread to discuss various problems and solutions related to them.

Alright, so I've just chmodded my Kareha directory to 777, all the subdirectories to 777, and my scripts to 755. When I run kareha.pl, It generates index.html, index.rss, and subback.html, but it spits out a 500 error afterwords.

In my Apache log, there were these two lines that generated any time I made a request for index.html or kareha.pl:

[Wed Jan 27 12:48:26.628422 2016] [cgid:error] [pid 16453] (13)Permission denied: AH01241: exec of '/var/cgi-bin/kareha/index.html' failed
[Wed Jan 27 12:48:26.631729 2016] [cgid:error] [pid 1029] [client] End of script output before headers: index.html

Now, as you may notice, I'm running cgi-bin out of /var/cgi-bin/ instead of /var/www/html/cgi-bin/. Could this have something to do with my problem? Basic hello world scripts work fine.

This is driving me crazy. What's even the problem here?

408 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2016-01-27 17:15 ID:Heaven [Del]

cgi-bin directories are usually set to try and execute every file. This is not compatible with how kareha works, it needs to be run from a directory where only .pl files are set to use cgi-handler.

409 Name: Anonymous : 2016-01-27 22:25 ID:fBHv6Ioj [Del]

I see. So would the standard /var/www/html suffice?

410 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2016-01-28 00:39 ID:Heaven [Del]


You'll have to enable cgi-handler for pl files, but other than that, yes.

411 Name: Anonymous : 2016-01-28 03:07 ID:fBHv6Ioj [Del]

Alright, thanks. I've now gotten to the error that >>26 posted about, and up there you said that it would require some tweaking to work with mod_perl, which is what I'm using. What would be the easier way than that?

412 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2016-01-29 09:50 ID:Heaven [Del]


Use mod_cgi.

413 Name: Anonymous : 2016-01-29 14:01 ID:WTy6LpOU [Del]

So what would I have to reconfigure to use mod_cgi instead of mod_perl?

【Kareha】 Kareha sites out there? (30, permasaged)

By the way, another Kareha board just went up (online to the Internet) a second ago: it is my new (or revicted actually) tabloid funnies imageboard, a cartoons imageboard for clean cartoons. I call it Nathan Shot The Copycat! Funnies, for no particular reason other than that I need to justify the domain name (I originally registered "Nathans Hot Copy" but found out that was trademarked, so to avoid legal bullshit I changed my site name to "Nathan Shot The Copycat Funnies"...).

If anyone wants to visit and contribute, or just to visit (there's nothing really on there right now), its at http://nathanshotcopy.info/ft/index.html - hope you enjoy it. I just used the default (ie Headline) css file, so it fits with my color scheme.

I am thinking I might need to set up a corporation for this project too... (thinking to self).

Mac OS X screen savers (372)

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.

Mac OS X 10.10.3 Yosemite Update (the .3) came finally out of beta.
The Beta versions (seeds) worked with LotsaGlass and I guess LotsaWater (not sure if I tested it, but ran LotsaGlass till today), but as of today they broke both LotsaWater and LotsaGlass to the point that SystemConfiguration kill itself when they are still present. I downloaded them new, seeing that at least one had a new version (mine where from 2009), but both do not work. My guess is, LotsaEscher does also not work.
Interestingly Mac OS switched to a different plain OS Screensaver by itself, thats when I noticed and tested it.

OK, so Apple released an additional update for 10.10.3, April 16th 2015 or so.
And for my Beta Seed 10.10.4, I have 2 Mac mini (one as a server), so installed both and on both the Lotsa Glass/Lotsa Water Screensavers.
Both work again and to not kill the Systemconfiguration panel when called.
After what I saw of the Beta test of 10.10.3, with at least 5 version seeded to me, I am surprised they screwed up this bad, there is are supposed to be more errors, like on showstopper where preview kills itself when displaying certain images on certain graphic cards - confirmed and reproduced http://heise.de/-2610406 , resulting in a Kernalpanic when displaying JPEG on an iMac Retina 5K.

Archives.app (36)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2012-10-10 15:00 ID:hvAY9RLB [Del]

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.

And now I have, and Apple approved it in record time, so I am going to release this ahead of new updates for The Unarchiver and The Archive Browser. Those will be coming, though.

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.

The Archive Browser (164)

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.

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

156 Name: John : 2015-02-18 07:10 ID:jb4gapzB [Del]

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?

I have installed 'The Archive Browser' however am unable to get it to preview zip files via QuickLook (space bar). The program successfully opens the archive and shows the contents, just not with QuickLook. When I view in the '/Library/QuickLook' or '/System/Library/QuickLook/' directories in Finder, there is no *.qlgenerator file which refers to archives.

Also, following up with Keith's question, is there a way to get the non-sandboxed license if we have purchased a license in the App Store?

When trying to exclude folders from subfolders (2nd or 3rd child level) doesnt work, those folders are extracted anyway even if they are skipped from selection.
Please fix this on next release.
Thanks & Regards.

The Archive Browser has also been updated to match The Unarchiver 3.10. It contains the same bugfixes, plus fixes for an issue where the app would close quietly rather than open files. The non-App Store version also has Sparkle updates now (also untested).



  • Fixed crash on OS X 10.11.
  • Fixed a bug where the program would sometimes exit silently when trying to open files.
  • Removed file type selector from the App Store version, as Apple broke it and there is no way to get it back to working. Apple does not allow me to tell anybody this in the actual app, though.
  • Added Sparkle updating for the non-App Store version.
  • Fixed an issue that made unpacked application not work.
  • Better support for Zip, 7z, gzip and NSIS files.

Hi! Is it possible to get a license for the non-sandboxed version if I send you the receipt of the MAS version?

162 Name: Michael : 2015-12-27 17:16 ID:GSb6Q2+7 (Image: 420x262 gif, 18 kb) [Del]

I downloaded the trial version 1.10.1.
It doesn't start under 10.6.8 (Intel-Mac).

10.7 is the minimum requirement now.

Is it possible to have a Quicklook plugin to see the zip contents directly form the Finder?
I refuse to install a competition software (BetterZip) just to have Quicklook…

Xee Support Thread (386)

This is the support thread for Xee. All kinds of questions and bugreports can be posted in here. This thread will also be linked from inside the program itself.

There is also a thread about Xee here: http://wakaba.c3.cx/sup/kareha.pl/1122405906/
It contains more general discussion, and announcements of new versions and updates.

Many thanks for Xee, a nice application. But - how do change the zoom increment? I can't find it anywhere. I like 0.1 zoom increment, the default is too high.

378 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2014-02-17 01:37 ID:JxCG07qV [Del]


Use touch zooming, or rebind the keys to use the fine zoom commands instead.

When I open an image by double clicking it in Finder, then a little flash of the image appears on the screen right after the image has been loaded. I was wondering if it's possible to turn this off in the preference file?

380 Name: James : 2014-11-19 05:56 ID:MSbH/NqR [Del]

How do you use multigestures to rotate? The main reason I bought Xee was because I was hoping that I could use gestures to partially rotate an image along the 360 degree axis (as opposed to only by 90 degree increments). Is this possible?

great application
have one little problem ...
MAC OS 10.6.8 Xee 2.2
Whenever a file is opened the following appears in the Console Message Log:

12/06/15 6:54:32 PM Xee[2943] Exception during initial loading of "(null)" (XeeJPEGImage): libjpeg error: Not a JPEG file: starts with 0xff 0xd9

But the image loads OK.
Have done a Hex Dump of the image files and they all start with 0xff 0xd8

is this something that can be resolved? Thanks

1) Would be nice if there was a thumbnail view available to jump quickly to the wanted pictures (if many pictures in the folder).

2) Also a sorting order would nice (scan through images by date, name, etc...)

3) Would be nice if we could navigate folders directly from Xee (like go to parent or next folder) without having to go each time through the menu and make file/open

385 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2015-12-17 11:10 ID:Heaven [Del]


There is already a sorting order option.
