    i see you have not been here long -=WELCOME=-
    lots of new stuff to learn....patience is great, asking before you mess
    up your system is very good!!

    uget-1.8.0.tar.gz is a file (called a "tar ball") containing the
    *source* code for uget...which must be compiled and installed...if you
    actually want to learn how to do that post again and someone will tell
    you how (or more likely point you to any one of thousands of
    explanations already existing on the web)..

    but, if you simply want to install uget then:

    -open YaST
    -click (on the right side) Software Management
    -type uget in the search block
    -click on the "Search" button
    -when the new list on the right is populated, single left click on uget
    (a green check mark is inserted--meaning "install")
    -click on the "Accept" button
    -sit on your hands while the magic happens

    installed this way (with YaST) you can always use YaST to uninstall
    it...and, if there is a security update for uget then YaST Online Update
    will apply the patch for you...(neither of those features of YaST are
    available to your system if you compile from source and install..

    way back in the old days (of last century) it was common to have to
    compile your own software from source....today, in openSUSE you can most
    often find what you need existing in one of our repos....and, YaST is a
    real easy way to install software from out repos...there are other ways
    too...
