    Hi Mike,

    Save it in whatever folder you want, then go to the command line and
    type the following:

    tar xzvf <filename>

    Where <filename> is the name of the file you downloaded.
    That will extract the contents, probably into a subfolder which will
    contain (most likely) instructions on compiling/installing. A tar.gz
    file is more or less the Linux equivalent of a .zip file in Windows.

    Hi. Your file is an archive. First, you'll have to unpack it with ark, tar or something else. After that you usually do ./configure → make → make install and try to resolve dependencies. Did that help?
