file roller compression problems with 7z

Can some please tell me why I can't make a 7z archive with file roller? I have already installed p7zip, p7zip-plugins, and 7za. I don't understand what the problem is. I can make a 7z archive from the command line with no problems. I keep getting this message but it doesn't tell me what the error is.

An error occurred while adding files to the archive.
