unrar 0.0.1 not working on rar files


Morning,

I have a .rar file needed to be extracted. I installed unrar as I have seen others post is a good one but is not working.

unrar -x [file_name]

gave me this error


Extracting from /opt/minecraft3/Cathedral+of+Azrail+Seal+of+Darkness.rar

unknown archive type, only plain RAR 2.0 supported(normal and solid archives), SFX and Volumes are NOT supported!
All OK



also this is all CLI, do not have a gui
Thanks =)

Hi,

You can use your distro's package manager to install a newr version, or you can download a precompiled binary from here
