    I was so blind...

    Use dolphin to extract the file to make it easy in kubunu or openSUSE kde version
    Ubuntu:
    Downloads the tar.bz2 into /home/<your user name>/Downloads from fedorahosted.org/liveusb-creator then extract to folder and write
    Code:
    cd Downloads
    cd liveusb-creator-<your version here>
    sudo ./liveusb-creator
    <your password here>
    After you finish you can delete the files.
    openSUSE:
    Download the files to /home/<your user name>/Download, extract them to folder and write this in the command line:
    Code:
    cd Download
    cd liveusb-creator-<your version here>
    su
    <your password here>
    ./liveusb-creator
    That is a weird way to do this but it is easy and it works... so much better than a .bin file which I still have problems with...

    And if you'd rather use the terminal to extract the .tar.bz2:

    Code:
    $ tar xjf /path/to/file.tar.bz2

    Actually that does not work, I still can't use the liveusb-creator the creator will open but it won't create anything.

    You need to install some dependencies first.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install python-parted isomd5sum python-pyisomd5sum python-urlgrabber extlinux
    There are detailed instructions posted here: http://ifireball.wordpress.com/2011/...tor-on-ubuntu/
