Welcome to LQ! The easiest way is to untar the codec file
tar zxvf <name of file>.tar.gz
Then enter the new directory
cd <directory name>
Then copy all the files inside this directory to the codec directory. I believe Linpus uses sudo, so
sudo cp * /usr/lib/codecs/
<enter your password>
If Linpus doesn't use sudo, just do
<enter root password>
cp * /usr/lib/codecs/
You will need to be in a terminal to do all these commands.
