tar -zxvf <filename>

then you have to follow the build instructions in the directory that's created (look for a README or INSTALL and read them).

Usually ... it's


make install

Any app that you need to install will (most likely) have documentation in the tar.gz file itself. Do,

tar zxvf filename

This would create a directory. go into the directory and there might be a README and/or a INSTALL file, which would have the details on installing.

In suse then you should have ARk installed. right click on the tar.gz/bz2 and go down to extract then choose an option.
and to install
bash configure
make install
