First, spell out your words, and write clearly. Your post is hard to read and understand. Also, please pick a more informative subject for you posts, other than "bad"....

If you have an RPM package, install it either through the terminal ("rpm -i <package name>"), or via the GUI. You say you saved it to your desktop...if you double-click the file, an option should come up, allowing you to install it.

bad is a poor choice for a title.
