There must be a very good reason why we complicated our lives with all these technologies ... arguably that is freedom for something. Freedom might be a right but it is never free; so let me demonstrate how I earned it.

unrar for Ubuntu
The Archive Manager in Ubuntu doesn't handle password-protected rar file well. It doesn't prompt for password, only failing with an error. A post on the Ubuntu forum led me to install unrar (non-free) from multiverse. This adds a "extract here" option in the right-click menu and that does prompt for password.
