That depends on which distro that you are using. If you are using an rpm based distro you can use rpm -ivh <filename>.rpm or if you have if you have a debian based system you can use dpkg -i <filename>.deb.
Now some linux distro's have a package manager. IE yum, or apt-get, pacman, emerge, and BSD's ports system.
I would check your distro's documentation.
If you downloaded a .tar.gz or tar.bz or tgz or tbz file then these would be source code files in which you would need to unzip them then decompress them and they will normally have instructions the useally end up in you doing the following
make && make install
