try
Code:
ls
to see that the amsn-0_83.tar.gz is there in the directory you are currently in.and now,repeat what i have said.if that doesnt work,copy the output of the terminal window.(copy from console by selecting the text and then pointing to the TARGET and then pressing the middle mouse button or the two side buttons together.)

If you are in Kde or Gnome, rightclick the file and choose "Extract Here", then create a link to the application with the command to execute it being: /home/guni/msn/./amsn. Good luck.
