I'm able to open .cbz files without an issue. When I open a .cbr file the images are blank. I have unrar installed. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Hello,

    I'll try to get myself a Debian VM later today to do some tests, but I'd also be interested in some other information:
    - Is this limited to one particular archive, and can this archive be extracted normally using unrar x? (just to make sure the file isn't corrupted)
    - If not, does your system have libunrar installed? (/usr/lib/libunrar.so I guess)
    - If yes, are you using an x86 or x64 architecture?
    - If no, can you post the version of unrar you are using? (Just executing "unrar" in some console should display the help screen, with the version number being printed on top)

    Oh, almost forgot the most important part: Which version of MComix are you running?

    Thanks for the quick response. The issue was that on Debian there is a difference between unrar and unrar-nonfree. The free rar version is limited on what it will unrar. You need the nonfree version to be able to unrar all files.

    Debian won't check for packages for nonfree software unless you add a line in the sources file.

    I'm now able to open .cbr and .cbz files.

    Again, thanks for the help and the quick response. I'm a little surprised that no one else has run into this issue before. Others probably had already added in a line in their sources file to check for nonfree software and didn't encounter this issue.
