#3858 closed defect (fixed)

Read claims cbr/cbz support but does not seem to have a handler for it

Reported by: greenfeld Owned by: godiard
Priority: Low Milestone:
Component: Read Version: Unspecified
Severity: Unspecified Keywords:
Cc: Distribution/OS: OLPC
Bug Status: Unconfirmed


Read claims to support (Comic Book) cbr & cbz files in its file.

But when one launches a .cbz file in Read nothing appears, although Read does not crash.

The .cbr extension also implies RAR compression according to Wikipedia ( which I do not think OLPC builds include support for.

Tested with the free CBRs (with .cbz extension) at

About .cbr, I agree we should remove support.

About .cbz, evince, I have downloaded and evince can't open it.

But the problem is solved if we install the zip package. (yum install zip)

dsd: can we add it to our image?

I would expect unzip to be sufficient here, which is already included.

dsd, upstream bug [1] have a explanation about why zip is needed.

I wait a decision here. If we can't include zip, I need remove the mime type.
