Unpacking tar.bz2 files on BackTrack from the GUI


OI all,
Trying to unpack the latest update of Mozilla browser. I'm running BackTrack 5 and saved the tar file to the desk top.
I've tried running several commands and none seem to work.
I think I'm missing a command prior to "tar -jxf file.tar.bz2"
Can anyone help me out???

And please READ the warning posted by the Kali developers

http://docs.kali.org/introduction/sh...use-kali-linux
to quote them

Is Kali Linux Right For You?

As the distribution developers, one would likely expect us to recommend that everyone use Kali Linux. The fact of the matter is however, that Kali is a Linux distribution specifically geared towards professional penetration testing and security auditing and as such, it is NOT a recommended distribution for those unfamiliar with Linux.

Warning: In addition, misuse of security tools within your network, particularly without permission, may cause irreparable damage and result in significant consequences.


If you are looking for a Linux distribution to learn the basics of Linux and need a good starting point, Kali Linux is not the ideal distribution for you. You may want to begin with Ubuntu or Debian instead.
