I need to download a file from this site.

I saved the file elements as Linux 64.bit into a temp folder in my desktop.

How do I get these files from my temp desktop folder to its final destination so I can use this new software I just purchased?

I'm using Ubuntu 12.04

Could you tell us from which website you downloaded the software? Which software is it? – slashcrack Feb 23 '13 at 20:49
The file format would be helpful too. most software has a deb package, which is really easy to install under debian. – Delusional Logic Feb 23 '13 at 20:54
Which file did you download? – serve.chilled Feb 23 '13 at 21:13

There's only one file there listed as Linux 64-bit, so I assume that's what you downloaded. That's a .tar.gz file. Move or copy the file to its own folder. To unzip it, browse to that folder in a terminal, then:

tar -zxvf kprano*.tar.gz

For this particular file there's nothing else to be done since it contains binary programs ready to run. ls will list the files. Run them with ./<filename>

The zip file above it is similar, containing demo html apps ready to run. Once it's in the folder you want, unzip it with unzip kprano*.zip
