how do you install .tar.z applications on puppy linux.i am a newbie
- In general, it's probably a better idea to try to get help on the distro's forums, since we can't be an expert on every distro. To unpack a tar.z file from the command line, do:
uncompress nameoffile.tar.z tar -xvf nameoffile.tar
- The program should then be in a new folder of the same name of the tar file (ie. Abiword 2.3).
