Hello and welcome to LQ. Please note the thread you started doesn't contain enough information to enable us to help you. We understand that Linux can be intimidating for new members, and we really do want to help. That said, please understand that LQ is not a help desk, customer service line for a product you purchased or willing to do your homework (although we are happy to assist you with specifics, if you show some effort of your own!). We're a 100% volunteer organization that wants to help you help yourself.

Here are a couple tips that will enable us to help you moving forward:
  • Before posting, have you used the search function to ensure your question hasn't been asked before?
  • When asking a question, be sure to provide as many relevant details as possible. You should include the distribution and version you're using, along with hardware details, application version and exact error messages where applicable.
  • Using a descriptive title will vastly increase the number of members who see your thread, and therefore make a response significantly more likely.
  • If you're actively troubleshooting an issue you should also include any steps you've already taken.
  • You may want to include how what you are experiencing differs from what you expected to experience.
  • You can edit your post by clicking the EDIT button in the bottom right corner of your message.
If you are unwilling or unable to ask questions in a manner that allows us to help you, it's unlikely our community will be able to provide you a solution. Unfortunately, serial offenders who show wanton disregard for this request after multiple pointers may be asked to seek help elsewhere. We truly hope that isn't necessary, and assure you Linux and Open Source are extremely rewarding and well worth the learning curve in the long run.

A .tar file usually contains many files put together into one single file, an archive file.

A .bz2 file is a compressed file that usually has to be extracted to be able to use it.

(To extract a .tar.bz2 file you use tar -xfvj)

how and where do get the extension for chrome Tar.bz2
you do not

it is not a thing you play or run

it is a compressed folder

normally you just need to do , after you download it is
" double click it " and your archive manager will ask you what to do -- THE SAME as on windows xp,vista,7,8,10,...
" r-click it" and select what to do with it -- THE SAME as on windows xp,vista,7,8,10,...
