.rar for Ark? (Or any other way?)
i've recently downloaded a bunch of .rar files and opened them with Ark but an error message comes up:
"The utility unrar is not in your PATH.
Please install it or contact your system administrator."
i've tried to use 'apt-get install unrar' and 'apt-get install rar' but it says it's not a package. So far any post i've found hasn't helped me. Does anyone know what i need to do?

unrar seems to be in the non-free repository. Go to:
and scroll to the bottom where you can "Search the contents of packages". Type in unrar and you'll see what I mean. You probably just need to enable the non-free repository in your /etc/apt/sources.list
EDIT: If you're using Kubuntu as your profile states, you may be having the same problem, but with regards to the universe repository. Check that you have all your repos enabled in the sources.list

i was there earlier today but couldn't find anything. After searching again i found 'unrar'! Now i just need to figure out how to do a basic decompression of files with it in the command line. If you know how to decompress a single file (not a folder) let me know. thanks for the help

i found out myself. To unrar a single file you type:
"unrar e file.rar"
Thanks again for the help.
