Hi there.
some of you running Linux VM's might want to be able to UNRAR some RAR files directly in Linux without having to access the files on your Windows system and extract / view via 7Z or other programs.

Other types of archives such as zip etc are usually managed by standard program such as Ark (linux standard archiver program) etc. However these won't handle RAR files.

Free program available UNRAR.

Available on most Linux distros in their package manager - for example Fedora / Centos / Red Hat type distros simply as sudo or root type yum -install unrar.

Then command line will extract your files preserving directory etc ( unrar x filename ).
