    File Roller / Archive Manager Problem

    I didn't know where this question would fall, so I decided to put it in General.

    I've never had a problem with extracting .rar files in Gutsy but for some reason, when I tried extracting .rar for the first time in Hardy (I think), I got this error:


    Could not open "GC.Y.A.H.pks.rar"

    Archive type not supported.


    The file, as you can gather from above is called: GC.Y.A.H.pks.rar
    At first I thought it wasn't working because of all the periods throughout the name, but that's never stopped it before, so I'm clueless right about now
    The statement below is true.
    The statement above is false.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install unrar p7zip p7zip-full
    Right click on archive and unpack here.

    Re: File Roller / Archive Manager Problem

    Hey I'm having the same problem and when I ty the above sudo apt-get it says this:
    "Package unrar is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package unrar has no installation candidate"
    Any help?

    EDIT: Never mind I got Ark Unpackager and got unrar-free...
