    How do you open the folder in the terminal.

    Would it be something like open rarcrack-0.2.tar.bz2 and then type `make `

    The file is on my desktop.

    assuming you have extracted the archive, you should have a folder called rarcrack-0.2 and this is where you need to end up. so if that folder is on your desktop, open a terminal and run
    Code:
    cd ~/Desktop/rarcrack-0.2
    and then run make

    (cd = Change Directory)

    That's just a warning and is absolutely fine, so now in the same directory, run
    Code:
    sudo make install
    This will ask for your password. When you type it in, it will look like nothing is happening. This is normal so just type your password and press enter.

    That has worked fine. rarcrack is now installed. Hopefully it will get your photos and videos back.

    Great, but the cursor is on the same line .

    Do I hit return so the cursor goes to the next line ?

    How do I enter my rar file , i.e. cd ~/ desktop/memories.rar

    Also, how would I start the program from scratch ?

    Last but not least is there a GUI program, please lords above ! LoL.

    P.S. I can not find this in repositories and those commands I use don`t work - just give an error , stating the directory or file does not exist.

    Or do I have to install the program every time and never use a knew line i.e all on one line ?

    Does the program include alphanumeric characters and if not how do you go about installing them ?

    Sorry for the ignorance here.

    Thanks for your patience.

    open a terminal and run
    Code:
    rarcrack --type=rar ~/Desktop/memories.rar
    and then let it do it's thing. it could take a while; which may turn out to be an understatement.

    It seems to be working . Great.

    So this is going to take a while , according to you.

    I noticed something called xml on the terminal , what is this ,another file?

    I hope I didn`t be so silly as to put in alphanueric symbols. The things you do when your young ......

    Excuse me, a Very Big Thankyou .
