I have a Contacts.arc file which took from a nokia phone as a back-up of contacts.Now my mobile is lost and i want to see some numbers.Is there any application to open .arc file in ubuntu?. I searched in google but didn't get any answer.
You may be able to use NbuExplorer (an open-source Windows application) to view the contents of the file.
I was able to run it in Ubuntu by installing the Mono Visual Basic Compiler (VB.NET) (
sudo apt-get install mono-vbnc) and then running
mono NbuExplorer.exe. I don't have an
.arc file to test this any further.
nomarch is available for ubuntu and details is provided in
nomarch Ubuntu Manual page.
sudo apt-get install nomarch
nomarch - extract ‘.arc’ archives
nomarch [-hlptUv] [archive.arc] [match1 [match2 ... ]]
nomarch lists, extracts, or tests ‘.arc’ archives. (An alternate extension sometimes used was ‘.ark’; these work too.) This is a very outdated file format which should certainly not be used for anything new, but you may still need an extraction utility, and here it is. :-) The default action is to extract all files in the specified archive; see OPTIONS below for how to do other things instead.
nomarch did not work for me(my file is .arc) :
nomarch: bad first header - not a .arc file?

I solved the problem by running
FreeArc's Windows version under
