Open a terminal, navigate to your folder and then try using this command:

./install.pl

if the perl script does not contain a path to the perl executable, you'll have to run it manually as a perl script:

perl install.pl

If none of above works, try setting executable permition to the file and try again.

chmod +x install.pl

If you've never used a terminal, you can check this video on youtube. –  Evandro Silva Nov 3 '12 at 16:05

Check the video I posted, you can go to a directory typing cd, to list all files in a directory, use ls, keep going your folders until you find the place you extracted your files. –  Evandro Silva Nov 3 '12 at 16:07
