You have a bunch or RAR files from windows, and also want to use them in Ubuntu.

The rar files are copyright protected, so the native installation of archive manager doesn't came with rar support. But there is a simple solution to get things done with only 2 lines of terminal code. Start your teminal: Applications/Accessories/Terminal, then enter or copy and paste line by line: (paste in terminal is SHIFT+CTRL+V)

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rar unrar
That's it. Now you can use rar files in your native gnome arhive manager.
