One of the most popular issues in the transition from Windows to Ubuntu is that Ubuntu is out of the box does not accept rar archive format and 7z. But even if you have opened it instead of the usual you get a set of Cyrillic kryakozyabr are not very pleasing to the eye to the user … ie you. The reason for this – part support UTF-8 format. But as always in Ubuntu is the solution to this problem. Namely the use of new versions of the archives.

And I recommend using 7zip. 7zip – a powerful archiver with high compression ratio. Under a mixed license: GNU LGPL + restriction unRAR. You can use 7-Zip on any computer, including commercial organizations. You do not need to register or to pay for archiver 7-Zip. 7-Zip works in Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP/Vista. There is also a port for command-line version of Linux / Unix. Its main features are: Packing / unpacking: 7z, ZIP, GZIP, BZIP2 and TARTolko Unpacking: ARJ, CAB, CHM, CPIO, DEB, DMG, HFS, ISO, LZH, LZMA, MSI, NSIS, RAR, RPM, UDF, WIM , XAR and Z.i t.d.Dlya ZIP and GZIP, 7-Zip provides compression ratio that is 2-10% better than ratio provided by PKZip and WinZipPereveden 74 language As you can see a fairly wide range of formats and to extract further problems should arise. To install the command line, type: sudo apt-get install p7zip p7zip-full p7zip-rar If you will need to archive it in RAR format then this tool should be used RAR. To install it, execute: sudo apt-get install rar but in my experience it does not use recommend. After installing it on Ubuntu 10.
