Please see the "Question Guidelines" link in my posting signature.

You have provided ZERO details about what you're asking, so there's not a lot anyone can tell you. Any bz2 file can be uncompress by using the bzip2 command. Type in "bzip2 --help" for details.

1. Open a terminal.
2. Navigate to the folder where the tar.bz2 file is kept.
3. Type this command on the terminal
Code:
tar -jxvf <name of your file>.bz2
You fail to tell us what kind of files are in the tar.bz2 archive so I can't tell you what to do once you've unpacked the files.

Do a tar -tvf of the bz2 file. Sometimes I prefer to view the contents versus extract if I don't know what's yet contained within the compressed file.
