New to the Linux world and am currently running Ubuntu.

Have not had many issues as I don't do a who lot with my computer,

The one issue I have come across that I can't seem to get around is when I received a compressed file, usually a rar split into many parts I don't know how to un-compress it, I have see a few free softwares out there that would do but have not tried any.

I would really like one that will compare the associated par files and un-compress at the same time,

In windows I use to use Quickpar to compair and repair my received compressed files and then un-zip them with winrar.

Any suggestions for which software I can use in place of the quick par?

Any suggestions for which software I can use in place of winrar?

Any software that will do both?

Thanks
Jeff

You ought to be able to add RAR extraction support to Ubuntu's default archive manager by searching for unrar in Synaptic.

I have not used Synaptic before (didn't even know what it was before you mentioned it and I happened to find it in one the the drop down menus)

I found something that seems to be working,

Thanks again
