WINRAR : Some work arounds

Solution A
#1. Make sure archive-manager is pre-installed. To check go to system->administration->Synaptic Package Manager and in the search box type- ‘ file-roller’ . It should list by default file-roller as installed and two more files like rolldice etc. So if file-roller is installed, cool else apply for installation.
#2.sudo aptitude install unrar

Solution B
Both steps #1 and #2 above in one shot: install p7zip-rar

saffrongeek@saffrongeek-laptop:~$ sudo apt-get install p7zip-rar
[sudo] password for saffrongeek:
