help with kvirk 3.0.0 install


can some one please tell me how to install kvirk 3.0.0? The filename is kvirc-3.0.0.tar.bz2. I type tar -zxvf kvirc-3.0.0.tar.bz2 at the terminal but it says that the file is not in gzip format. I am a bit of a newbie.

Well, the file extension is bz2 - the bzip2 compression format - so you have to type tar xfvj kvirc-blabla.tar.bz2. The z stands for uncompressing .gz files, j for bz2 files.
