    quick sample:

    Ubuntu does not take rpm packages, you cant install them.

    If you have a file that is e.g. package.tar.gz you can do on terminal window:
    gunzip package.tar.gz
    then:
    tar -xvf package.tar
    there it will create a folder, take a look:
    ls
    package

    go to folder created by the package:
    cd package
    In there you will see a bunch of files, it varies depending on what the package is, it may be a readme file that will tell you how to install it, maybe you may need to compile it.


    If you have a .deb package you can double click on it and the package manager will help you to install automatically or you can install via terminal:
    $ sudo dpkg -i package.deb

    cheers!
