To enable the support for .rar archive files, you need to install a package called “unrar” which is only available though the RPMFusion repository. To enable this repository first, paste the following in a terminal while being root (type su at command prompt), however if you have enabled it already then skip to next step!

rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm

Install unrar by doing this

yum install unrar

Follow the prompts by answering yes to them to finish the installation. You should now be able to extract or create rar files using the standard archive manager.

    This does not work! When trying to install unrar I only get the messsage that there is no package named unrar.

    @brotkuchen, For the command to work, you must first install the rpm fusion repository as described in the post!

    @lifehacker: thx for taking the time to anwer. I wrongly assumed that I installed both rpm fusion repos weeks ago. It turns out that I only installed the “free” repo. After installing “nonfree” it works.
    Sorry for beeing not attentive enough.
