I installed ? (at least I hope so !!) unrar with

sudo apt-get install unrar-free

I tried from Archive Manager
Archive Manager displays the existence of files inside the Archive.rar
After the "Extract" command, it show as a dialog "extraction completed successfully"
but nothing seem to happen, the extracted file can not be found

I did a try with command line in Terminal
providing full path of the Archive
the result given is "Failed"

are there file name restrictions in place ?? or maybe I make some other mistake ?
is there another application able to unrar files / able to handle Archive.rar using a graphical interface ?



I believe unrar is command line only but you may want to install Xarchiver

You can find it in the software center.

enter image description here

Or install from the command line with:

sudo apt-get install xarchiver
