install aplications, impossible for me

Hi, new here and in linux
Decided to start working with this because i think linux is potentialy the best OS...depending on the distribution of course...
Unfortantly i'm getting a lot of problems to install anything on KDE enviroment.
I use SuSe, and for example today i wanted to instal teamspeak RC2 client here, downloaded the linux version and the package had some stuff, including a file named I've read the instruction and it said "To install using the gui, just startup """ so i thought, well this is gonna be easy, how wrong i was
Any way, i thought, "well i'll follow the instructions for manual instalation" wich were:"manual install:
copy the contents of to the directory where you want to
install ts2. Then edit the "teamspeak" script. replace %installdir% with
the directory where you installed teamspeak to." after i made it, nothing happend, no file opened tried to open any file, avery single file, no new file or directory has been created, linux dont start up, and konqueror often tries to open that files, which is kind of stupid (i say) because konqueror is a broswer, not exec extractor or something....

anyway, can someone help me, the real big problem in my opinion is no installing TS (i can live without that) but if i want to instal another thing i'm 99% sure that i wont be able to install it also.

so plz be nice to a great noob, and help him...

so you ran, I'll assume the worst, that you didn't use the Command line and just double-clicked the file.
so, for TS, you need to open up a Terminal (Konsole, if you're in KDE) and "sh" the full path to (ie. 'sh /home/rumsteak/teamspeakdir/')
sh means that the program will run in the Bourne Shell rather than bash (the Bourne Again Shell)
If that gives you an error, tell the good people in this thread exactly what that error is.

Almost every time you want to install something, you will be supposed to use the Console. It's not really that hard, but a lot of documentation will assume that you already know the basics (like './configure && make' or 'sh' or 'sh' as well as things like changeing Directories (cd) or making directories (mkdir) copying and pasting (cp))

A good place to start learning basics would be an online Bash tutorial.
