    I think you might mean tar.bz2 files. All you should have to do is right click the file and then Click "Extract Here".

    It should create a folder in the directory you're currently in.

    Re: opining tar.bzs files

    depends on what was in the .tar.bz2 archive. is it a program, data files, source files? If its a program than there should be an executable in the folder it created just double click that to run or run in a terminal. Source files need to be compiled to run so look for a readme or install text file for instruction on what to do with it.

    Quicktime for Linux requires a copy of of libmpeg3 in a directory next to itself. This provides the mp3 interface.
    Your directory structure should thus be:


    /my_directory
    /my_directory/libmpeg3-*.*.*
    /my_directory/quicktime4linux-*.*.*
    type "make" in the libmpeg3 directory.
    Type "configure" in the quicktime directory.
    type "make" in the quicktime directory.
    type "make util" to get quicktime to build some utilities.

    I can not find the libmpeg3 file needless to say I'm lost :< And this is just the start!
    Thanks

    isn't it in the 2nd line: /my_directory/libmpeg3-*.*.*?
