    How do I start a tar.gz

    I downloaded a new flash player tar.gz
    What is the way to start the installer in this tar,gz form?
    I loged in as root, went to root's home, went to the root directory, then the home folder, then clicked on the flash player folder. There is a folder called flash player installer.
    How do I start it from here? I was told you extract it here and it will start.
    How do I start this extract?
    Thanks

    tar xf file.tar

    Cool, thanks guys for the help.
    Where you said tar -xf file.tar.gz do I type the name of the file where it says file?
    Sorry if this is a dumb question, I just was not sure. ;D

    Yes. if you download a file called goodfoodlist.tar.gz, and saved it as /tmp/goodfoodlist.tar.gz, then you would change directories to /tmp and do tar -zxvf goodfoodlist.tar.gz.

    Actually 'tar -xf <filename>.tar.gz will not work. When working with a gunzipped tarball, you need to do:

    tar xvzf file.tar.gz (or file.tgz)

    If you have a plain tar file (i.e. file.tar), then the 'tar -xvf' would work.

    gunzip file.tar.gz(or .tgz) then type

    tar xf file.tar
    You can do this, but it's one more command from 'tar xvzf file.tar.gz'.
