Fresh install. Archive manager not working.

Postby hanxer on Fri Mar 28, 2014 7:45 pm

Hi
Just installed LMDE Cinnamon 64-bit 2014 03 and I can't open multi part rar archives with archive manager.
When I run the something.rar archive manager opens but doesn't display any contents.
Any ideas?
Thanks.

Hi hanxer,

Instead of the packages rar and unrar try p7zip-full and p7zip-rar. I had the same problem as you and this fixed it.

Hope this helps. :D

standalone sudo apt-get installed p7zip-rar worked like a charm. I haven't removed rar/unrar packages.
