    Rar Files in Ark

    Hi!

    Whenever I try to open .rar files (using Ark) that I made on windows, i get an error message 'The utility unrar is not in your PATH. Please reinstall it or contact your system administrator.'
    Does anyone have a solution?

    I think that ark can not open rar files. Ark is for zip files. You could create a zip file instead of rar file if you want ark to open it.

    A command-line version of unrar can be installed via apt-get.

    Type, as root, in a terminal
    Code:
    apt-get install rar unrar
