    You mean, you're running winrar using wine on linux ?

    K7Z can handle password protected rar archives created by winrar. Check this link out:
    *K7Z KDE-Apps.org

    Ofcourse, you could use the command line utilities 'rar' and 'unrar' to create and extract password (un)protected rar archives. It's just a matter of memorizing the right switches to use with unrar. Type 'unrar --help' to see all the available options.

    You can simply type 'unrar xv <yourpasswordProtectedRar.rar>' and hit enter. Unrar will ask you to enter the password and provided you entered it correctly, unrar will extract the files with full path.

    Read the INSTALL.txt which, lists all the pre-requisites for K7z.

    You'll need PyQt4 (4.1) from Riverbank : PyQt : Overview.

    Either compile from sources or download binary for your distro.

    The other requirements are Qt4 and P7Zip.

    If you don't want to got thru' all this, you can simply install P7Zip if not already installed. Look for 7z binary. You can either use 'which 7z' or 'locate 7z' for this.

    Once you have the 7z, you can use the command line version of it as I've described in my previous post.
