A much eaiser way to verify and repair PAR2 files.

This assumes you have par2 installed

As a normal user:

  • Open konquer and select settings-->configure konqueor-->File associations--->Add--->par2--->Add
  • You should add *.par2 and then in all caps *.PAR2
  • Click Add under application preference order---->type the word konsole------>command for konsole is
konsole --noclose -e par2 r

That will enable you to double click par2 files and a konsole window will open and verify and repair if needed. The window will stay open when finished so you can be sure all went well.
