Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kdeutils

Kubuntu Intrepid, latest updates

lsb_release -rd
Description:    Ubuntu intrepid (development branch)
Release:        8.10

sudo dpkg -l | grep kdeutils
ii  kdeutils                                   4:4.1.2-0ubuntu1                             general-purpose utilities from the official KDE 4 release

sudo dpkg -l | grep konqueror
ii  konqueror                                  4:4.1.2-0ubuntu1                             KDE 4's advanced file manager, web browser and 

Steps to reproduce:
Open this page in konqueror
click on the attached .txt.gz file, and, as suggested by the browser, open it in ark
What should happen: I see the name of the file, and am able to view it in my favourite text editor
what happens: ark opens, but there is nothing listed in the window 
Also saving the file, and trying to open it with ark from the command line or file menu fails.
Saving the file and ungzip-ing it from the command line works fine, so it's not a problem with the file.
If ark isn't the utility to view .gz files, then it shouldn't be called by konqueror.

 I attach the file I haven't been able to open.
