How to open or extract rar files in Linux (Ubuntu)

NOTE * You need an active internet connection to install this program.

1. Open a terminal window by going to "Applications->Accessories->Terminal"

2. Type this command on terminal
sudo apt-get install unrar

3. Enter the password for current user and you are done

On terminal screen enter above command

bond@bonds-pc:~$ sudo apt-get install unrar

4. After installation, you can just right click on a .rar file and extract it directly. :) 

I did this on "Ubuntu 10.10 - the Maverick Meerkat". This might work on other Ubuntu versions as well.
