I’m trying to extract a RAR file (a type of compressed file) on my new Ubuntu machine. I use the built-in archive manager application and keep getting this error message:
Originally I thought it was a problem with the file (maybe corrupt), but after doing some DuckDuckGo’ing I found a simple cause: unrar (the programme to do the extracting wasn’t installed!
The solution is to go to the commandline and do:
sudo apt-ger install unrar
Now, its all working!
