winzip and winrar are for windows. Not for linux. To unzip a file just use the unzip command or from ubuntu desktop you can just click on the zip file and choose to extract here. To unzip a rar file just install the unrar package. NOTE that for ubuntu you need to add the MULTIVERSE repository.

I did extract 3 files. I still cannot get the 3 files to work.
This is what I get when I tried to ge them to work.

"AdbeRdr9.1.2-1_i486linux_enu.bin%20(2)" cannot be opened
No application suitable for automatic installation is available for handling this kind of file.

"npjp2_linux_jasper_pthread.so" cannot be opened
No application is known for this kind of file.

"RealPlayer11GOLD.bin%20(2)" cannot be opened
No application suitable for automatic installation is available for handling this kind of file.

to run the bin files you must first make the execuable by doing
Code:
sudo chmod 755 ./AdbeRdr9.1.2-1_i486linux_enu.bin%20(2)
this will make it so that you can run the bin file then you will
Code:
sudo ./AdbeRdr9.1.2-1_i486linux_enu.bin%20(2)
the other file .so is a library of sorts. you don't really run it. Just place it in your /usr/lib directory and symlink to it whatever application requires it.

But why do things the old windows way? Never heard of a package manager? You can probably install all of those with a few clicks from your operating system, without searching the internet and downloading all sorts of stuff that you hope is not infected with some sort of malware.

Where do I find the MULTIVERSE repository and how do I add it?
