use this command :
tar xvzf <fie-name>
After this u can go to directories created upon execution fo these commands and find out if there is any install shell script. OR there might be README files at least.

tar.gz is a compressed file, kinda like .zip if were talking windows world. probably the easiest way for you to do this is to open your konqueror browser up (thats if your using KDE I'm just guessing) and browse to the file and double click on the file then copy the contents of the tar.gz file into another folder. there s/b a readme or install file that will tell you how to install.

you should probably fill your profile out so people know what distro and version you are running. what distro are you running? Are you using KDE or GNOME?
