Opening .rar Files With Password In Ubuntu.

If you are looking for how to JOIN .rar files in Ubuntu and it asks for a password that does not exist, visit this post for the instruction of how to do so.

I have to post this because there are so many searches looking for how to open Rar files with password protection. I cannot find a way to create .rar files with password but opening was not a problem at all.

  1. First, make sure you have installed the unrar package. If not, visit this post for instructions.
  2. Open the .rar file by double clicking on the file.
  3. To open a protected file within the archive, double click it. A password dialog will pop-up.
  4. Enter your password and hit enter. Choose your desire location and hit enter. You are done.

I am not sure why so many have problems with this. Again, I might be ignorance and I’m just not addressing the right problem here. If not, please let me know what the real deal is.

I would also like to check out how to join split .rar files. I will post something soon.
