Archives extract empty folders Ubuntu 18.04.5


I hope this is the correct place for posting this. I did not find a solution, this is a workaround.

When you extract an archive in Ubuntu 18.04.5, it only extracts an empty folder.

Open the archive and use the extract button. Select the folders and use the “extract selected folders” option on the bottom. I have not tried with “extract all folders”, it might work.
