I have the
rar package installed. Double clicking on
.rar files opens the file in Archive manager. It works fine when folders or files use only characters with no accentuation, but if there is some accentuation present (inside the archives, not on the archive container filenames), then files that will open just fine in Windows using Winrar, 7zip or other archiver will produce an error message in Ubuntu.
The Archive Manager window will show the file list with wrong charsets, and trying to extract the files will produce two distinct errors:
If I double click the file:
RAR 4.00 beta 3 Copyright (c) 1993-2010 Alexander Roshal 17 Dec 2010 Shareware version Type RAR -? for help Extracting from /media/folder/file.rar No files to extract
If I use the extract command:
all the files in the archive will be extracted but
(invalid encoding) will be attached to the end of the folders and files with accentuation.
