Thread: trying to install RAR

  1. #1

    Default trying to install RAR

    why you may ask? because Ark is not doing what i like it to do. rar is very stable. will at less it is to me. but i don't know how to install it the right way. hear the link I'm trying to download rar. WinRAR archiver, a powerful tool to process RAR and ZIP files. if you can i like English WinRAR and RAR 3.71 for Linux

    try to make this a easy step by step download. I'm steel new to linux. I just started at July 5,2008. I'm using openSUSE 11.0 KDE 4.0.

    PS: don't try to change my mind about getting KDE 3.5. even if I'm going to learn the hard way. i think it better to learn the hard way. imo you learn more this way.

    If you just want to unpack RAR archives, you can install unrar, it's in the OpenSUSE repos.

    Hi
    It's in the pacman repository, unrar is in the standard install.

    .rar is not supported in suse 11 YET so...
    Dude. To use winrar you will first need to make sure 'wine' is installed.
    Pick up winrar from filehippo.com
    Wine is a Linux app, and is in Yast - software management.

    Save the winrar.exe to your desktop or other easy place

    Now open a terminal and cd to the location of the winrar.exe, eg:

    cd /home/xxxx/Desktop
    (xxxx)= your user name, change as needed

    Now in the terminal type:
    wine ./Setup.exe (Setup.exe is just an example, you need to type the exact name of the winrar .exe file)

    That should install winrar for you.

    No - so long as you have an active internet connection
    Go to Yast - Software Repositories
    Disable the DVD
    Make sure
    oss and non-oss are both enabled and refresh auto
    Finish

    Now go back to Yast - Software Management and install wine
