This bug seems to be present on Kubuntu 16.10 also.
Attempting to open a rar file gives "No suitable plugin found.
Ark does not seem to support this file type."
dpkg -s shared-mime-info | grep Version
I have installed rar, unrar, p7zip-rar. I can extract files from the
command-line but not from Ark.
