Rar files in Ubuntu

24 Nov

Ever got the experience of Archive type not supported in Ubuntu, while trying to work with rar files? Here is the solution. To make rar types work in ubuntu…

sudo apt-get install unrar

After successful installation, use these commands to play around,

$ unrar e file.rar - To unpack the archive

$ unrar l file.rar - To list files inside a rar with details

$ unrar x file.rar - To extract the rar with full path

$ unrar t file.rar - To test the integrity of archive
