Unarchiver is already used for rar files if unrar is not found, ac5d324.

And as I understand bsdtar is compatible with gnu tar so it is up to the distribution to make it work with bsdtar.

yes you're right, but libarchive/bsdtar could be cool to be included on engrampa too. in my opinion is the best alternative option for RAR archives :)

@sc0w works fine for me on gentoo with unar 1.6. And please don't put unrelated issues on a feature request, instead open a new issue.

Hi,
I have the same problem. I'm trying to package MATE 1.18.x for OpenMandriva and I discovered engrampa had problems with tar* archives. I guess it's because OpenMandriva uses bsdtar as default tar but bsdtar has a different syntax with respect to tar and it has a different output too (even if the tar* archive are compatible) so engrampa is currently unusable. Have you some plan to add support for bsdtar to engrampa?
