unzipping
 
i just got a raspberry pi with debian linux. I cannot seem to decompress any files. The file i want to decomp is on my desktop....so that would make it /home/pi/desktop. I only have tried to unzip from the command line interface...and i cannot get the archiver to work in the GUI. Plus if i did unzip using the command line...i dont know where the unziped tar.gz files go? Can someone give me a few suggestion??

If you saved to Downloads & unzipped it there,it would be a file in Downloads. What kind of package (exact name) xxxx.tar.gz, xxxx.tar.bz2?

What commands you tried? To extract a tar.gz file, do:
Code:

~$ tar -zxvf filename.tar.gz
OR
~$ gunzip filename.tar.gz
~$ tar -xvf filename.tar
