    Hi, I've installed comix through my debian package manager, but I'm having trouble trying to read .cbr files. Comix says I need Unrar in order to read these files. I have a debian unrar package, but itś called unrar-free and I think the different name is causing the trobule. How can I solve this?

      Simplest option: rename it to unrar I would think

      You should not rename it IMO, instead, create a symbolic link as root on /usr/bin like this : ln -s unrar-free unrar

      This will solve the problem and when you upgrade unrar-free package you will not have to rename the file or create another link.
