Help me get Xarchiver 4.9 on linpus lite to unrar rar files

I had to reinstall everything on my ACER aspire one, and now I can't unrar rar files with xarchiver. I tried installing ARK but that didn't work, and instead of troubleshooting why Ark isn't working I'd really just like to get Xarchiver to work. I uninstalled and reinstalled using yum but that didn't change anything.

Any advice? I also tried installing the source code of xarchiver 5.0 from a tar.gz, but the ./configure needs to be able to find gtk+-2 and for some reason it can't.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated on how to get xarchiver working again.

yum install unrar
You may need to have the non-free repositories enabled if your distribution has them. If that doesn't work, go here.
Hope I helped!
