Package: thunar-archive-plugin
Version: 0.3.1-2
Severity: normal


Since the recent file-roller upgrade from 3.12.0-1 to 3.12.1-1, the  
program is not dectected anymore and "Extract here" button ends up to  
"No suitable archive manager found.".

This may be related to commit f32fe39d745cc4e6b848f14a8d511243071f7649:
     Make DBus-activatable

     This conmmit installs a service file, renames the desktop file
     to follow the bus name, and adds the DBusActivatable key to the
     desktop file, following


Reverting to file-roller 3.12.0-1 solves the problem.

Since it is a regression from previous behaviour, and since  
file-roller will not roll back its changes, I think  
thunar-archive-plugin needs to evolve either with a patch or by  
removing file-roller's support (in Recommends). I would rather suggest  
the former since xarchiver seems to be unable to handle multiple  
selected files at once, thus lacking a feature over file-roller.
