Rar files is another popular file format that people use to archive files.
Unfortunately, Ubuntu does not support rar files out of the box.

You need a third-party tool call “unrar” which is available in Ubuntu Software Center (search term: unrar)

Note: This package only offer file extraction. It does not allow you to create rar archive.

After installation, you should be able to extract the files in the rar filesĀ using the context menu of your file manager or Archive Manager.
