Extract to archive name option for thunar

I'm using engrampa, thunar and thunar-archive-plugin.

-h, --extract-here
Extract archives using the archive name as destination folder and quit the program

This is from manpage of engrampa however, it doesn't work this way, when i manually extract via terminal all it does is just extracting to dir.

I tried file-roller, engrampa, xarchiver, ark(this one doesn't even work).

engrampa -h test.zip --force "$@"
I ran this command as well, which is exactly what the plugin does, still no luck.

I was wondering, doesn't even matter which archive manager it is, any of you guys managed to get that feature working?

Thunar 1.8.15-1
Engrampa 1.24.0-1
Thunar archive plugin 0.4.0-3

Edit: I just realised it works when there are multiple stuff in the archive. If there is only 1 folder or just 1 file it extracts to the same dir. I'm silly it works.

Re: Extract to archive name option for thunar

I use Xarchiver by default. The thunar plugin works fine. Create archive, extract to and extract here all work.

Re: Extract to archive name option for thunar

It's apparently a bug, people using the exact same setup and exact same OS have extract here functioning normally.
I make so many modifications i don't have a clue where to look. I tried dolphin+ark and i have the same issue with that as well.
