Welcome to the mailing list. :)

I don't know about a PPA for ranger.

If you have 1.5.4-stable and want to use 1.5.5-stable, all you have to
do is wait until Ubuntu package maintainers update the version in the
software center.  I don't know Ubuntu's policies so I can't tell you how
long it will take.

If you don't want to wait, or if you want to use the cutting edge
version from git, there are download links here [1].  The downside is
that you'd have to manually update and uninstall ranger, since the
software center doesn't know about software that you manually install.
Using "git" makes updating easier though.

First, install the program "atool", then in ranger, type "1l".
In ranger-master, you can press "r" for a list of programs that you can
open a file with.  For archives, option #1 is aunpack, which unpacks
