8 Thanks for that hint!
10 app-arch/unar currently seems to be the only free choice for kde-apps/
11 kdeutils-meta-19.08.3[rar]:
12 rar? ( || (
13 app-arch/rar
14 app-arch/unrar
15 app-arch/unar
16 ) )
18 Does anyone know, does kde-apps/ark (for which kdeutils-meta depends on the
19 rar implementations) also support app-arch/libarchive for RAR files? Is any
20 useflag needed to get RAR support in libarchive?
22 If kde-apps/ark does support unpacking RAR files with app-arch/libarchive,
23 could it please be added to that dependency list? Then app-arch/unar could be
24 removed from my system.
