    Default which file compressor opens multiple rar's?

    Hi all,

    Trying to figure out what is a good file compressor that will open a set of rar files into a single file?

    Ark isn't to well with this.

    Thanks

    In kde3 just install rar (you might check you have all the various archive packages installed)
    you should be able to just right click - extract

    in kde4 I'm using RAR GUI Utility
    Leap 15.1_KDE

    would that gui utility be available for KDE3?

    I already have rar installed.


    Thanks

    Did you tried gnome file-roller, it will open almost every compressed file.
    Linux[openSUSE, KDE], PHP, MySQL, Wordpress, Tech News, etc :

    Do you need a GUI.
    I haven't tried running it from KDE3, but I guess it should work. Though whenever I use KDE3 I only ever use the file manager to navigate and then use right click extract.
    The rar gui is in the 4.1 factory community
