Thanks for the question.

unace is only a commandline tool. It does not have a graphical interface, nor does it work in conjunction with ark.

You can use it by opening a commandline terminal like Konsole. With "man unace" you get the help page that gives you the options how to use the program.

Here is a small tutorial for beginning to use the commandline terminal:

I hope this helps.
