You shouldn't need the "./john" part... just
python /Users/victor/Desktop/KJSF.rar

(or if python is installed, just " /Users/victor/Desktop/KJSF.7z"

(don't use 7z2john if it's a RAR file... use rar2john :)

I am not sure how I made the assumption that the file was 7z, it actually
appears to be RAR. If it's a rar file use rar2john, or if it's a zip use
zip2john, if it's 7zip (or p7zip etc) use 7z2john. RAR is going to be
sloooooooooooooow unless you can think of the pass or close to it :)
