I want to install pidgin and firefox on Gentoo the problem is, I can't open .tar.bz2 or .tar.gz files. So I figured, oh I'll just get fileroller. Then I got fileroller down but, it came down in a .tar.gz file. If you need further clarification let me know.
P.S.: I just switched from Ubuntu to Gentoo cause my friends told me ubuntu was "fake Linux" and that I should get "hardcore Linux". also it looks really good with different skins. Anyway I'm liking hardcore Linux a lot.
Thanks in advance.
