How to join rar part01 part02?

Asked by Gary Ferrao on 2010-11-14

I am searching for a software in Ubuntu which can join rar split archives like something.part01.rar , something.part02.rar etc.

tried 7z, Ark, and File Roller but it still couldn't join them. They all show that its extracting, and a file something.doc (the 1 file inside) is outputted but it is of 0 bytes and doesnt open.
There is no option to join. I tired the option to extract and it outputs a 0 bytes file.

I searched the Ubuntu Software but nothing useful was found.

I tried joining them on Windows using Winrar, Winzip and it works, so the files are not corrupted.

Could anyone please find out a program which can join rar parts?

Please first enable the multiverse repository:

Open System → Administration → Software sources → [ Tab Ubuntu software ]
enable "Software restrictecd by copyright or legal issue ( multiverse )"
Close and confirm the repository reload.

Then open a Terminal from the menu Applications → Accessories → Terminal and type:

sudo aptitude update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo aptitude install unrar unrar-free unrar-nonfree

give your user password when requested, you don't see nothing when you type it, then press enter.

Then try to extract your file

unrar -x filename.part01.rar
