    RAR files

    Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone could help me get RAR support in Archive Manager. I do not want to run Wine and use Winrar through that. Thanks!

    Open a Terminal and run:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install unrar
    That should fix your issues.

    Wouldnt he also need to install rar if he needs to make RAR files ?

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install rar unrar
    If you need all the extras like MS fonts etc ,

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ubunt-restricted-extras

    As far as I know the unrar package is meant to be used to uncompress the .rar files,the rar package is avaible for free only for a limited period of time,if you want it after that time you have to pay it.

    Re: RAR files

    Hi...
    I adder unrar from synaptic. Whenever I want to unrar files I can see them in the archiver utility, but if I try to extract them nothing happens (i.e. it only creates the supposed directory but none of the files are extratecd...). Trying with terminal, unrar output "failed" for every file...

    Re: RAR files

    Maybe the file is corrupted or it's a fake .rar file,some days ago I downloaded any .rar files I thought were compressed slides I needed,but those were all porn file with a .rar extension.
