    You have to unzip it first, then compile it.

    Code:
    tar -xvzf amsn-0_94.tar.gz
    Go to the directory that it unzipped to, then look for a readme file. It will give you the instructions on what to do from there.

    Also, if you want a gui, install file-roller and make it default for opening gz-files.

    I gave you the command to do so in my first post. Get to a console and type that in the directory you downloaded that file to.

    You are trying to use Linux as if it were Windows. A suggestion. Read up on how Linux operates and how to do things with the CLI (Command Line Interface). There are some good tutorials to be found at the link at the top of this page. Read through them.

    The following should install it:

    In a terminal put the following:
    Code:
    tar -xzvf /home/kasutaja/MSN/msnid/amsn-0_94.tar.gz
    cd /home/kasutaja/MSN/msnid/amsn-0_94
    ./configure
    make
    su -
    [rootpassword]
    make install
    Now if you didn't have any problems it should have installed, and run it with
    Code:
    amsn
    in the terminal.
