Cannot open rar archives


  When I try enter into rar archives, the error message "/usr/share/mc/extfs/urar: rar: command not found"
is shown. It's true - I don't have rar program in my Linux. But I have
unrar. I don't need to create or modify rar archives, just unpack only.

  IMHO, it is not very well when the free program (mc) requires
proprietary program (rar) by default. The simple workaround to allow mc
enter into rar archives is install unrar and do

  $ cd /usr/bin && ln -s unrar rar
