Comment 156 for bug 238208

James

I think the method is to place the folder in places/home, right click and
open with the archive manager
this should detect that it is a software package and handle correctly
Or perhaps do some reading - official documentation or ubuntu forums for the
latest word on the subject
sometimes with Tarballs (fancy zip folder) you need to place it in the
correct place and ubuntu can be hardware specific so don't ask me
I haven't bothered trying it as my wife has that machine, good luck
