Rar compression

aONe edited this page May 28, 2018 · 12 revisions

Due to restrictions in access to external binaries, the final 1.1.0 has no RAR compression support. In some 1.1.0 beta versions, Keka supports RAR compression if the rar binary is found on your machine.

If you don't have the binary on your machine, you can download a trial version here or buy the full version here.

Note you'll need the command line version compiled for Mac OS X/macOS.

Where to put the rar binary

The paths that can be used are these:

  • /bin/rar
  • /usr/local/bin/rar
  • ~/bin/rar

Easy way to put it there

cp <DOWNLOADED_PATH/rar> /usr/local/bin/

Remember to restart Keka.

Many thanks to Alexander Roshal and the RARLAB team for it's great work.
