    Need help installing software!!


    Right now I am trying to install a torrent client (I don't know which is best for Linux Mint).
    I've tried Bit Torrent and Ktorrent.
    When I download these files they come like something that reads:
    ktorrent-4.0.3.tar.bz2

    I open the folder and it contains a bunch of files that I have no idea what to do with.
    I've been a Windows user all of my life, so I'm basically used to just being able to install software within a few clicks.

    I guess what I want to know here is how I am supposed to install ANY software on Linux.
    I have Linux Mint (If that makes a difference).

    I would be VERY appreciative if someone could please take the time to help me.

    Thanks ahead of time!
