Add rar extraction to Gnome’s Archive Manager (file-roller) May 11, 2009

You may see this when trying to decompress a rar file:

Too bad that file-roller does not tell you what to do (in contrast to Rhythmbox when new codecs need to be installed).

The solution is very simple, just install unrar like this:

sudo apt-get install unrar

That’s it. The Archive Manager can uncompress rared files now.
