    How to unrar files

    I have a folder that has 13 rar files with the file extensions from .r00 to .r012.

    I've installed unrar (free) through Synaptic Package Manager, but when I highlight all the rar files and then right click, extract, it doesn't extract correctly.

    Would someone know how to extract this? There is only one video file within all of these files.

    Thank you

    Highlight the files, right click, and select "Open with Archive Manager".

    Double-click only the first file. File Roller will open and click the Extract button. It will automatically find the other parts.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    Please, mark the thread as solved with "thread tools" in the right upper part of the page in order to help others to find easily the information.
