    i installed UNRAR utility and any .rar file that i try to unrar, i get a failed error for each file in the rar

    for example, lets say i got music.rar and track1.mp3 and track2.mp3 inside

    i do
    unrar -x music.rar
    it says something like this
    track1.mp3 failed, track2.mp3 failed etc

    whats the problem? and whats the best utility to use in ubuntu to unrar files?

    i would:

    sudo apt-get install rar unrar

    then the graphical package extractor should work fine.

    the ubuntuguide has you symlink something and I don't trust it.

    Give us the error it is giving. I am guessing that isn't just failing with no error.

    apt-get install rar unrar gives me this

    reading package lists...done
    building dependecy tree... done
    package rar is not available but is referred to by another package
    this may that the package ism issing, has been obsoleted or is only available from another source
    E: Pakcage rar has no installation candidate


    how just apt-get install unrar works

    Because he probably downloaded a rar that he has no control over the source compression method :mamoru:

    your sources.list file does not reference a repository that knows about rar.

    The version of rar/unrar that comes with Ubuntu by default is the free version, which doesn't have all the features of the non-free version. You can get the non-free version through synaptic as long as you have the non-free repositories. The package is called unrar-nonfree.

    It can unrar files, but only files rared with an older version of rar. It hasn't been updated to handle the new files yet. If the people who make the non-free rar would release the specs for rar files, then it would be easy to write a free unrarer.
