unar: Uncaught exception NSCharacterConversionException, reason: Can't get cString from Unicode string
I am observing the same.
Can I get the steps to reproduce this?
I just typed: unar filename.rar

NM, Can you tell me if you have Japanese/Korean/Chinese characters on your rar file? If I can remember when I did this bug thread, I was able to uncompress my normal files, without "rare" characters for unar.

Try to uncompress a rar file with something Japanese material.

sorry, I the second reply was for you.
I will be surprised. However, indeed sometime it does work without problems.... Perhaps my file is corrupted ?
If either of you can get a public RAR file which can you reproduce this problem or you can upload one of your own (no private info please), it would be helpful. Meanwhile I have built the latest version of unar for Rawhide (Fedora 21), 20 and 19 and I would recommend testing with the latest version.
If this resolves the problem, I will mark this bug as fixed against the latest update when I file it. Thanks for testing!
