    How to install WinRAR in Ubuntu?

    Anyone can suggest me a good unzipping program (includes .rar files, or anything)?

    My OS is Ubuntu 9.04.

    Don't run any command with rm unless you know what you're doing. Read this for more information.

    I believe it should be at "Applications > Accessories > Archive Manager".

You can easily compress and decompress files and folders in Ubuntu using WinRAR.
    Correct, but WinRAR isn't free and only I find is trial version forl inux for WinRAR, it is why I'm here .

    I think just rar should work then...

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install rar
    Try that out.
