In my mc.ext I have following rule for tar.xz files:

    Open=%cd %p/utar://
    View=%view{ascii} xz -dc %f 2>/dev/null | tar tvvf -

But, when I press Enter in mc on foo.tar.xz file, mc shows the file as empty. This works fine for other archives, such as .tar.gz. I have xz-utils installed. Do I need another package for this to work?
