there also a good one called unrar. If you use KDE and you have unrar, you can use ark to open and view contents of .rar files.

Cool schatoor. Do you know if that's a stand alone or just a front-end?.

Anyway, there's a rar linux from rar itself:

just uncompress it and you are in your way using it. Keep in mind that the Linux version is command line only.

You'd be better off using something like ark over linrar as it can handle a wider range of compression algorithms.

I recommend Ark, it works quite well.

Isn't the Linux one from the WinRAR company command-line only? Plus it gives annoying register menus like WinZIP does.
