I have a dvd as rar files and am trying to unrar it via Ark and here is the message:

The utility unrar is not in your PATH.
Please install it or contact your system administrator

Probably a simple problem but can t see the answer?

Just use unrar from the command line. Go to the folder where the rar files are, type: unrar e <Type the first letter of the rar files and hit tab. Select the rar files with the lowest number: ea .rar or rar00>

Why not put unrar in say /usr/bin and flag it as executable? Then ark would find and use it (unless its compiled without rar support, which shouldn't be the case for Mandriva).

Here is a web page that might be handy.

It certainly helped me to extract some pasword protected rar from some music site (legal).
