Thread: Multipart Unrar from desktop.

  1. #1

    Default Multipart Unrar from desktop.

    Hello all.

    New here. Only been using opensuse for a couple of days.

    I am trying to unrar a multipart rar file from the desktop. Ark does not do it. I have checked and as far as i can tell unrar is installed. The files are located on a network drive if that makes any difference. the files are named from .rar through to .r28

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks

    It does.
    But the files probably have to be on your local hard disk so Ark can access them. If you click on a file from a remote share in dolphin, it is temporarily copied to your hard disk and then opened, so the other parts are not there.

    Alternatively, try to mount the share before accessing it, e.g. with mount or smb4k.

    Tanks. I will try work out how to mount it and give that a go.

    Regarding "mount", the simplest way for a SMB share would be:
    Code:
    sudo mount //HOST/SHARE mountpoint
    (replace mountpoint with the location where you want to mount it, i.e. where you want to be able to access the share afterwards, /mnt would be an option)

    This line only works if the share allows guest access without username/password. To specify a username/password use something like this:
    Code:
    sudo mount //HOST/SHARE mountpoint -o username=xxx,password=yyy
    smb4k is a graphical tool for browsing/mounting SMB shares, it is included in the distribution, just install it with YaST or zypper.

    are you sure unrar is installed, it's propitiatory software and while old versions of opensuse did come with unrar/unace newer ones do not.
    you are trying to use ark, why not open a terminal window and execute (un)rar the output will tell you if rar is installed, you can get a pre-packaged rar rpm from packman
    http://packman.links2linux.org/package/rar
    Another good OFM/unpacker that handles rar is doublecmd, that one does not use the unrar console application but am unrar library
    https://software.opensuse.org/package/doublecmd-qt
    there is a gtk port if you prefer gnome style window decorations

    unrar is still included in the distribution, but it is in the non-oss repo:
    Code:
    wolfi@amiga:~> LANG=C zypper se -s unrar
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    
    S | Name           | Type    | Version     | Arch   | Repository           
    --+----------------+---------+-------------+--------+----------------------
      | libunrar-devel | package | 5.1.7-2.1.2 | x86_64 | openSUSE-13.2-Non-Oss
      | libunrar-devel | package | 5.1.7-2.1.2 | i586   | openSUSE-13.2-Non-Oss
      | libunrar5_1_7  | package | 5.1.7-2.1.2 | x86_64 | openSUSE-13.2-Non-Oss
      | libunrar5_1_7  | package | 5.1.7-2.1.2 | i586   | openSUSE-13.2-Non-Oss
    i | unrar          | package | 5.1.7-2.1.2 | x86_64 | openSUSE-13.2-Non-Oss
    v | unrar          | package | 5.1.7-2.1.2 | i586   | openSUSE-13.2-Non-Oss
    And I think it is even installed by default (it is recommended by the installation patterns IIANM), at least if you open YaST and didn't disable the installation of recommended packages.

    you are trying to use ark, why not open a terminal window and execute (un)rar
    Wouldn't work at all for remote shares if he doesn't mount them first...
    The same might be true for that other application you suggest, or maybe that one does mount a share if you access it?

    I know, I wasn't sure opensuse included unrar in any of the repo's, that's why I mentioned packman.
    FYI there is an LGPL open source project called unar "The Unarchiver commandline tool" that has full unrar 4.x support, the rarlab people weren't too happy about it
    https://software.opensuse.org/package/unar
    Fileroller can use it if it's installed not sure about ark
    https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=646606
    There is anoter LGPL project that can unpack rar files called unarr (it's based on the above Unarchiver)
    https://github.com/sumatrapdfreader/...ster/ext/unarr
    they don't have any Linux binaries only c code
    doublecmd comes with it's own unrar shared object and it's a cool TC clone for Linux
    https://software.opensuse.org/package/doublecmd-qt
    https://software.opensuse.org/package/libunrar it's Free as in free beer not free speech

    All good thanks people. unrar was definitely installed.

    Once i got the mounting sorted all was good. I had a small problem though as I could browse my shares but when trying to mount and when I used smb4k it showed me i had a firewall issue. Fixed that and all is good. Have an issue with vlc now that i have to try and work out.

    VLC issues are generally due to proprietary stuff. No proprietary stuff ships by default in openSUSE. it is all well....open

    So in general you can get proprietary compatible versions from packman. So all parts of vlc must come from packman to play proprietary formats. There are stickies a the top of the mutimedia section of the fourm that shows how
