Open a terminial and cd to the directory where the file is waiting to be unzipped. Then type

tar -zxvf gtk-gnutella-0.85.tar.gz

Then follow either the readme or install file and you should be all set.

And when I mean graphical I mean colorful buttons and eye pleasers. This does not have that at all.
