[Bug 1527817] Re: unhelpful error message "Parsing filters is unsupported."


I have the issue. The problem is I am unable to extract an archive with
files of a particular format. The problematic formats are TIFF and PDF.
However, one can open the other files inside the archive (without
extraction). My version is 15.10 with all updates.

  unhelpful error message "Parsing filters is unsupported."

Status in file-roller package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Steps to reproduce:

    1. download http://www.speedlink.com/support/bin/sl-8861-b-cd-content-02-26-10.zip
    2. try to extract the `.iso` file into `/tmp/`

  The error message `Parsing filters is unsupported.` doesn't provide
  any information and doesn't explain if something and what is wrong and
  thus needs to be replaced by  a message which does that.
