Starting to learn the ways of python, having trouble with the bare basics im afraid.
I have no idea how the following works, "perhaps the simplest way to run python programs is to type them at the Python's interactive command line. Assuming the interpreter is installed as an executable program on your system"

If you have python installed 9 ( assume you have) you will want an editor. I recommend IDLE as it works very well.

The easiest way of learning python (recommended to me ) is by writing simple games.

Extracting files? Forget about them, python is installed by default on Ubuntu...
