open a root xterm and type "apt-get update" and when that's done, "apt-get install unrar", and when that's down close the Xterm
Open emelfm and navigate to your rar file and type in the input line at the bottom of the window "unrar myfile.rar".

Posted by dafunks on June 06 2007,00:10Hi, I was searching and found this post. I did the apt-get update part and got this error. Can anyone help?
E: Could not open lock file var/lib/apt/lists/lock - Open (13 Permission denied)
E: unable to lock the list directory
If anyone could help it would be great. I installed apt-get from the MyDSL program and from what i saw nothing went wrong.
