File Roller is a piece of sh*t

Filed under

I never liked File Roller, and now I’ve got proof it sucks. Besides terrible usability, it handles partitioned rar files very badly. By partitioned I mean when a rar file is separated into .r00 .r01 etc parts, by very badly I mean it can’t handle it at all.

If one of the part files is corrupted, File Roller instead of notifying you of this, like Winrar does, will probably ask you for a password. You’re left thinking “What password? The blog said no password!” File Roller is thinking “Ponies are cute I’m going to the bathroom and lick the toilette” and the developers are busy checking out and thinking about golden showers instead of how to put together a program that doesn’t suck.
