Installing winrar in ubuntu


Hi,

I have acquired the command line version of winrar but im still new to command line instillation so if anyone could help me install winrar. I have the .tar.gz file already. I would just use the archive manager but for some reason it doesnt support .r00 files

Thanks for any help.

I guess you mean rar for linux
All you have to do is to untar it and put the files "rar" and "unrar" in a directory in your PATH (i.e. in /usr/bin).

If you don't know how to untar, you just use "tar zxvf filename.tar.gz", but without the quotes. The options (z, x, v and f) can be in any order. See "man tar" for more info about said options.
