Are you sure that file is in /usr directory.I think it's in /usr/something/file or maybe somewhere else.What's the output of ls in /usr directory?

It looks to me that you've saved that file somewhere else.Thing you could do is to download that file on your desktop and then cut it in the /usr directory.How are you downloading this file?From the terminal?

Have you successfully downloaded the file?

Do you know where it is? (Use find if necessary)

cd to the directory where the file is---the run tar (I use tar xzvf, but your form may work also)

sdcc;

Please give more complete responses to questions---be sure that it is obvious WHAT question you are answering (use quoting with the original question).

Also, give the complete picture, eg:

I downloaded the file using _______
The file is in _______
I tried to extract it using tar
The error message was ____________

+ anything else that might be relevant


Reading this thread, I could **guess** that you are trying to use tar to do the download......(It won't work)

To download the client from the (linux) command line
Code:
wget  http://64.34.161.181/download/3.3.0/Linux/nxclient-3.3.0-3.i386.tar.gz
To download the node from the (linux) command line
Code:
wget  http://64.34.161.181/download/3.3.0/Linux/nxnode-3.3.0-3.i386.tar.gz
To download the server from the (linux) command line
Code:
wget  http://64.34.161.181/download/3.3.0/Linux/FE/nxserver-3.3.0-8.i386.tar.gz
Then you can sudo tar zxvf nxclient-3.3.0-3.i386.tar.gz
Etcetera.
