I have a strange problem here. If I right click a rar file and ask to autoextract the files, ark hangs. If I try a zip file, it's fine. If I run ark from a terminal, upon trying to extract the rar file, the terminal appears to ask for a password. BTW, this is with any unprotected rar file, has nothing to do with protected rar files that require passwords.

Are you using the proprietary unrar or the GPL version? The latter seems to do this a lot.

That fixed it, I switched to the proprietary version.

Actually I had some similar problem recently with ark and rar.
Funny thing is ark-3.5.10 works but not ark-4.3.
ark-4.3 doesn't give the same options to rar/unrar.
