open up the terminal/command line

tar -jxvf filename.tar.bz2
this will probably create a directory azureus in your current directory. You can launch azureus from there

cd azureus
I don't use KDE so can't tell you how to create a launcher but I believe if you right-click on the panel, you should be able to find a option there.

he's right - just right click on the menu button and choose "menu editor". navigate to where you want the icon for azureus to be and select "add application". Then, you can choose the icon it displays. Also, you will have to give it a path to run from. This will be most likely just "azureus", but you could be more specific like /home/b2fmaster/azureus/azureus, or wherever the executable is. before you close, you must hit the save button. It should be added to the menu in the place you chose. good luck!
