  • tar.gz is a tarball. it's like a 'zip' file; but in an older *nix way. the gz tells you its gzip'd & tar tells you its multiple files tarballed into a single file suitable for writing to tape etc. the unix way was do one thing & do it well; so one command compressed (bzip, gzip being different types of compression) & another combined (tarball) expand & then you'll see the readme & other files, and can install. it can be done from command prompt, or a tool such as @ravery said. I'll not go further as covered elsewhere as Sumeet Deshmukh said – guiverc Jun 22 '17 at 8:40
