"Extract here" in Thunar fail

Can I adjust this somehow. Obviously, the unpacker is missing. How can I change the path or the unpacker itself? it says: "Failed to extract files. No suitable archive manager found."

Re: "Extract here" in Thunar fail

What format are you trying to extract?  If its bla.rar, install unrar... if its bla.zip, install unzip, if its bla.bz2, install bzip2 etc

Squeeze is a forked xarchiver that hasn't been updated in awhile. Definitely doesn't make much sense that it works on one and not the other...  check the MimeTypes in /usr/share/applications/xarchiver.desktop on each computer, see if they're same/close and both contain application/x-zip;application/x-zip-compressed;application/zip;multipart/x-zip etc

Thank you, that was the reason. No xarchiver.desktop exists.
