If by some unholy reason you’re left with no internet and no network manager to connect it, the simplest way to install it is download the packages manually and install them one by one. I was not able to use the ubuntu cd, that would be the *best* way to do it I guess. On a fresh install ubuntu studio 8.10 with no network connectivity whatsoever, I only needed:
All links point to i386 architecture and were built for Ubuntu 8.10. If you’re running a different version, you should search for the packages in the Ubuntu Package Search. I will spare you some trouble and if you’re running Ubuntu 9.10 the packages are:
I never liked File Roller, and now I’ve got proof it sucks. Besides terrible usability, it handles partitioned rar files very badly. By partitioned I mean when a rar file is separated into .r00 .r01 etc parts, by very badly I mean it can’t handle it at all.
If one of the part files is corrupted, File Roller instead of notifying you of this, like Winrar does, will probably ask you for a password. You’re left thinking “What password? The blog said no password!” File Roller is thinking “Ponies are cute I’m going to the bathroom and lick the toilette” and the developers are busy checking out tube8.com and thinking about golden showers instead of how to put together a program that doesn’t suck.
Even if File Roller decides it should notify you with an error message, it’s no good because the command line output tells you nothing you can decifer into a usefull message. “program exit 23 runtime segfault bullshit” is not feedback, it’s useless.
File Roller is a big piece of Fail. That’s why I’m currently using Winrar with wine and it works wonders. You can’t drag and drop, but it’s ok. It’s better than using FR. I will give 7zip a try though, I heard it was good.
