Having to use wget to dl a zip file is silly!

Asked by Genma on 2015-11-29

Had a zip app installed just for the record. Anyways I was downloading a file with the browser and all i get is "Sorry, there aren't currently any apps installed that can handle this type of content" come on that's just silly! Having to whip out wget to dl a file is just frustrating.

If you set it to open with file-roller it will open the file from temp. All you did by using wget is manually download the file then open it with file-roller manually. The browser can do all this for you. The binary to select is

/usb/bin/file-roller

Of course on the desktop that would work, i'm talking about ubuntu touch browser.

I suggest you report a bug
