BROKEN - Extracting rar archives

Extraction of rar files is impossible in Whonix if the archive has a password.

Neither the command unar nor the package xarchiver or file-roller is able to extract password protected rar archives. I’ve tested this myself by creating a simple archive then extracting it right away.

Test this yourself. Boot up the latest Whonix version in a VM and do the same I did.

This is unrelated to Whonix.

Whonix is based off Kicksecure which is based off Debian.

Use internet search engines to lookup how package unrar works and use it appropriately.

This is out of Whonix support scope.

You would need to show that this works on Debian (bookworm) but is broken in Whonix.
