The Unarchiver, part 2 (470)

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!

All right, I tried experimenting some more, and I did find some bugs. I am not sure if they are the exact same that you are hitting, so could you try testing this version for a bit to see if it works better, the same, or worse?

Gah, weird. Will have to investigate further.

Is your external drive formatted for Mac or Windows?

Running v 3.11, DL'd from app store. Running OS X 10.11.5.
Keep getting error messages when attempting to extract multi-part rar files - "part x is incomplete" etc. Extracting to same folder as original files.

Doesn't occur with every set of files, but with most.

Files extract normally, and are complete, when using MacPar.

Suggestions?

466 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2016-05-24 21:47 ID:Heaven [Del]

Is this 3.11.1 or 3.11?

467 Name: Blu : 2016-05-24 21:55 ID:kckPDzkE [Del]

3.11 (107)

468 Name: Blu : 2016-05-24 21:56 ID:kckPDzkE [Del]

App store reports it as up to date, FYI.

469 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2016-05-24 22:24 ID:Heaven [Del]

>>468

It's not, 3.11.1 is the latest, on the App Store too.

Archives.app (37)

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.

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

Probably, but I'd have to get it first.

31 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2013-09-23 17:40 ID:hvAY9RLB [Del]

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.

32 Name: Edgardas : 2014-03-12 01:37 ID:wek6Kbro [Del]

Xee, part 2 (612)

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.

603 Name: Leo : 2015-11-30 13:04 ID:FT9Ff1nV [Del]

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 ?

> In general the program works, but on your Webpage you present some previews where there are shown more pictures in the screen.

Pictures from other folders will open in new windows.

> Also the menu option "Frames" remains grey and doesn't work.

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?

610 Name: Anonymous : 2016-04-29 01:14 ID:Oa+Il5R3 [Del]

Honest question: is Xee abandonware now? I as because updates are so rare and there hasn’t been any features added in such a long time. Simple things, like resize, were promised 2+ years ago and there's still nothing.
Another issue is that Xee still has less bugs than Xee^2. Xee^2 still can only browse images inside the folder by name only. If you use Xee, you can set it to creation so you're not jumping around all the time when you're renaming images. Xee^2's preferences for browsing apply to scrolling/gestures only which is weird and illogical (if you use spacebar, it will take you to a diff image than if you use a gesture to go to a next image).

Anyway, I'd appreciate a honest reply because I'm thinking of removing Xee off my computer and will start looking at other options.

Thanks!

611 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2016-04-30 13:51 ID:Heaven [Del]

>>610

It's in maintenance mode, because that is all I have free time for these days.

I should add that Xee is not sold with any promises of future features ever, what you see is what you get. Anything added later is purely a bonus.

Also, Xee 2 has been out of development for many years now.

A small update, 3.5.2, has been released. Changes:

Mac OS X screen savers (374)

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:

http://wakaba.c3.cx/releases/mac/LotsaEscher.zip

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.

366 Post deleted by user.

367 Name: Ingo Lembcke : 2015-04-18 02:09 ID:ZnBhSw/g [Del]

Solved!
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.

Hi, just to report that the black screen issue still is present in El Capitan, but the problem now extends to the primary screen as well. But I haven't lost my faith in LotsaWater! Still my favorite screen saver :)

Is there going to be a version of Lotsawater that works with El Capitan (v10.11.2)? I love this screensaver and would hate to lose it. I'm running it, or trying to, on a late 2011 MacBook Pro 2.4 GHz Intel Core i7 with 16GB RAM and Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB.

The Archive Browser (166)

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!

http://itunes.apple.com/app/the-archive-browser/id510232205?mt=12&ls=1
http://archivebrowser.c3.cx/

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

http://code.google.com/p/theunarchiver/issues/list

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.

157 Name: Adam : 2015-03-09 10:55 ID:OvX/6HIV [Del]

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?

Hi,
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.

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).

http://archivebrowser.c3.cx/downloads/TheArchiveBrowser1.10.dmg

Changes:

  • 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.

I don't actually have any questions about how to get your software to work, it always seemed pretty straightforward and relatively easy for me. In my experience, just like you said;

"if it doesn't, there is something wrong with the configuration of your server, not the software."

I just wanted to thank you for making it.

According to most of what I have read and learned about perl,
most of what you have done is impossible, or would at least require an eight hour long castration process, with a pair of dull garden shears.

Eg; Kareha using javascript flawlessly without needing sixty modules from cpan, and a gcc compiler to choke and quit while compiling on windows (what I use, usually).
I'm still not entirely sure what Kozakana html/pl is, apart from a rocket on the back of a pig (want these skittles, kid? o.O) I'm impressed.

Mac OS X widgets (92)

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:

http://wakaba.c3.cx/releases/mac/AlarmClock.zip

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.

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.

Just thought I'd mention that I grabbed the Laughing Man widget, it's neat. Thanks!

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:[email protected]/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.

On Shiny Orb: Useless it may be, but it sure is fun to look at! :D

Would this be a horrible idea?

11 Name: Anonymous 2005-10-13 01:47 ID:oPSDdS/j [Del]

Couldn't this be coupled with OpenID or something to prevent abuse?

Another thought: This is wide open to a denial-of-service attack where you set up a malicious server that trickle-feeds the data it serves. You can tie up a huge number of Apache processes that way.

Seems most scripts that fetch remote files would be vulnerable to that... Not that I can think of many that do, offhand.

sender.pl has something in it that's supposed to counter a similar problem. Whether it actually works is another question.

>>14 I don't see what you did there.

I need this feature, trust my users, and know nearly nothing about coding.
Could you send me in the right direction? I'm willing to learn.

They can actually just paste a URL in the file select window, and it'll work the same way. I know for sure this works in WIndows on Firefox.

I am aware of this option, but it's not optimal due to the long time it takes to finish.

19 Name: Anonymous : 2013-03-19 16:52 ID:Heaven [Del]

I'll see if I can figure something out.

Can't unarchive files directly by double clicking. (2)

1 Name: CommanderMark : 2016-03-15 20:44 ID:OW1uBHo4 (Image: 1280x800 png, 346 kb) [Del]

Whenever I attempt open any file with Unarchiver, it will always open the application to the preferences menu, where it prompts me to set Unarchiver as the default app (even though it already is).

It will not let me close this message, and any time I double click a file I want to open it will always opens to that message, without unpacking the file.

I can still navigate to the menus and unzip the file like that, but it still requires having to go slightly more out of way just to unzip the file.

I think my issue has something to do with the message box that appears, but there's no way for me to close it, which leads to the problem of me not being able to access the preferences as well.

Attached is an image of the notice I see. Any help would be appreciated.
