How is this different from those provided with ark (or karchiver for that matter)?

I know it's cool making new actions, but is there a point duplicating ones that exist already?

Hey wise ranger guy, you should really fully read what the guy is doing here before you start talking badly about his work.

He created a action service menu to create TAR files only.

Haven't you noticed, KDE does not come with a "Create tar Archive" only.

KDE only provides the following:
"Create gzipped Archive"
"Create bzipped Archive"
"Create zip Archive"
"Zip this directory"
"Archive & Encrypt Folder"
"Compress"

Some of us like creating only TAR files without sending it through gzip. We only want the foo.tar file, not the foo.tar.gz file.

Great work dieselweasel!

I noticed ranger made his comment a long time ago, around 4/22/2004 and today is 10/15/2004. I find it useful. I wonder if he'll read this since it's been so long since his comment?

There must be something wrong with your version of KDE then....

Both KDE 3.3 and 3.4 under Fedora Core 3 and Kubuntu have "compress as xxxxx.tar" as one of the options on the Ark service menu........

Could you post a "zoom-in" readable screenshots of the service menu.

Thanks!

I've posted a new screen shot. Hopefully this will show in enough detail what the service menu does.
