WinRAR on Ubuntu

As a novice Linux and Ubuntu Fiesty Fawn user I have faced some issues related to RAR Archives. WinRAR is the Windows tool widely used for this purpose and it is also a powerful archiver. If one has wine installed as mentioned in one of my earlier blogs they can install WinRAR in no time following this.

I am just mentioning the steps in short.

  • Download WinRAR 3.7
  • wine {PATH_TO_EXE}. E.g. wine wrar371.exe. Having Desktop emulation configured using Wine is necessary. winecfg -> Graphics -> Emulate…. checkbox
  • Run WinRAR with the following command: wine {PATH_TO_INSTALLATION}/WinRAR.exe

I hope all enjoys WinRAR on Ubuntu.
