How to open, extract and use RAR files in Ubuntu

Archive Manager in Gnome does not support .rar files by default.

To use .rar files in Ubuntu/Debian, type the following lines in the terminal.

sudo apt-get install rar
sudo ln -fs /usr/bin/rar /usr/bin/unrar

Then use the Archive Manager to compress and uncompress RAR files.
