PowerArchiver for Ubuntu?


Hi,

I need to unpack a few r00, r01, etc.. files from a torrent. On Windows I used PowerArchiver. Is there something similar for Ubuntu 7.10?

Thanks

Doesn't File Roller come with Ubuntu? That handles them fine.

Install unrar (or unrar-free on some distros) and you should be able to extract rar (they are rar files right?) files using File Roller or using the unrar command.

He is asking for GUI app.

You can use Winrar via wine.

Or PeaZip (free software) for Linux

File Roller is a GUI app. It just needs unrar (unrar-free) to be installed in order to handle rar files. Unrar can also be used from the CLI if you wish.

Thanks guys, I'll check them out. For some reason I thought PowerArchiver had a Linux version, but looks like it does not. GUI or command line, it really does not matter, as long as it does the job.

reddazz's solution with unrar helped. After installing it, ran Archive Manager and all worked great.

Thanks for the help

On a side note, anyone know of a good solution for backing up your windows data to your linux instance?
