Thank you so much...

I know I don't really need it, but today a friend sent me a rar file and I needed to tell him to recompress it as zip and send it again...

For example running: apt-cache search rar unrar Gives you this in the output: unrar-free - Unarchiver for .rar files unrar - Unarchiver for .rar files (non-free version) Install it as usual: apt-get install unrar-free Then use it with: unrar-free x file.rar (From memory, I haven't used it for a while). You can also search for packages on the Debian website at: http://packages.debian.org/ Steve
Now I found the package unrar-free, but it won't work unless the rar files are from a version <3.0.
I also tried with p7zip... the POSIX version of 7-zip... but it doesn't support rar files...
If anyone else know about an application that works with rar files =>3.0 I'll be really pleased.
I give up.
