What filename(s) do you have? You can get rar for free from software centre, so slightly confused...

Sure there is. If you run:

sudo apt-get install unp rar unrar p7zip-rar p7zip-full

You can extract rar files using file roller via right click in nautilus, or:

unp filename.rar

Its a free (as in beer) tool to extract rar files....

You could even install unrar-free which is 100% free (is open source too) to extract rar files.

Can you help with this problem?
