You type in "unrar e <filename>", and press ENTER. Read the man page on the unrar command for more help by typing in "man unrar". you don't say what version/distro of Linux you're using or provide any details at all...please read the "Question Guidelines" link in my posting signature. if you don't have unrar installed, chances are it's available from your distros online repositories...how to install it will vary depending on your distro.

That is ONE place to get it, but certainly not the best or easiest, given the OP's question. For a newbie, installing it from their online repositories is FAR better and easier.
