After unpacking the file I end got a file with a lock sign to the top right of the Icon what does it mean and what to do with it.

I manage to remove the lock sign from properties but couldn't open any idea

Your kind desktop is probably just telling you that the file is not readable or executable by you, or is owned by somebody else. Did you unpack it as root or some other user, or something? Who's the owner of the file (right-click > properties)?

Code:
ls -l filename.xxx
see the owner and group, if the owner is not you, as root you could
Code:
chown yourusername filename.xxx
after which yourusername would be the owner of the file.
