What does it have in there? Where did you get it? Is there some documentation in there? (a README, or something similiar, perhaps a doc folder?)

Remember tar.gz files are just like zip files on windows, anything can be in there so you have to give us more info.

You can install it from the software centre or using :

sudo apt-get install wicd-daemon

hope this helps you.

Extract the contents of the .tar.gz. Extract the .tar file from the contents. In there is a file called INSTALL, which will step you through installation.
