Installed it recently, works very nicely also with xfce, apart from a 
bug if you open the same archive twice. The desktop file could be 
tweaked, as it will produce a warning. A simple

sed -i 's,multipart/x-zip;,,g' /usr/share/applications/xarchiver.desktop

after "make install" and before "update-desktop-database" will take care 
of that.

Kind regards
