Ok, after reading several comments, I realize the problem is when you try to join .rar files, archive manager automatically requires a password even though there is no password when the file was separated. I found the solution for this, there are two ways, using terminal (rar command) or Wine (install winrar).
Using terminal is more complicated but faster. I do not recommend this to inexperienced users or ones who do not feel comfortable with command lines.
Wine acts like a Windows emulator that allows you to install and run Windows applications. Using Winrar in Wine has the benefit of graphical interface and also the full functionality of Winrar. I strongly recommend this if you work with .rar files extensively.
- Open terminal: Ctrl+Shift+T or Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal
- Install rar command
sudo apt-get install rar
- Enter your password.
- To join parts of .rar files, use the command below.
rar e filename.rar
For example, if I wants to join zenwalk-5.0.part1.rar, I would enter
rar e zenwalk-5.0.part1.rar
The output looks like this
- To see more options associate with rar command
There you go, happy unrar.
- Open terminal: Ctrl+Alt+T or Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal
- Install Wine
sudo apt-get install wine
- Enter your password. After that wine is installed.
Wine will now be the default application to execute .exe and other windows files.
- Download Winrar here at cnet.com or just google it yourself.
- Double-click on the file you downloaded or Right-click and select Open with “Wine Windows Program Loader.”
- A window will pop up and guide you through the installation, just like in windows.
- In the future, you can now manipulate .rar files just like in windows.
I hope this help some of you guys out there. Leave a comment if this works for you. Please…
