    Ark right click options missing in 15.10

    Previous versions of Kubuntu allowed one to right click on an archive to choose to extract it, or on files to compress them. This functionality seems to be missing in 15.10 - any way of getting it back?

            Is the 'play with ffplay' a KDE4 service menu ?
            If yes - look - Krename KDE4: https://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?...128621#p343062

            The KDE4 service menus are at:~/.kde/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/
            and
            /usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/


            The new KF5 service menus are at:
            ~/.local/share/kservices5/ServiceMenus/
            and
            /usr/share/kservices5/ServiceMenus/


            Krename KDE4


            The Krename is a KDE4 application - > http://packages.ubuntu.com/wily/amd64/krename/filelist .
            It is installing the Service Menus to the /usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/


            A workaround is to link the /usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/ to the /usr/share/kservices5/ServiceMenus/.

            Searching with 'play with ffplay service menu' -> http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=156551
            Donwloading, unpacking - yes it is a KDE4 service menu:

              It can so easy, if you know what to do . Copy all from ~/.kde/share/kde/ServiceMenus to the new created folder ~/.local/share/kservices5/ServiceMenus and Dropbox and Simpel Root Actions are back. Only "play with ffplay" and "checkmd5" did not work. Also not in /usr/share/kservice5/ServiceMenus/. Maybe later, there will be a new, working version.

                Copying the ffplay-peace-service-menu-file.desktop to the ~/.local/share/kservices5/ServiceMenus/. Opening the desktop file....aha...KF5 no more dots.



                The ServiceTypes should be:
                Code:
                ServiceTypes=KonqPopupMenu/Plugin,video/*,audio/*
                Then there will be the 'play with ffplay' context menu:
