HI

I am new with Linux, so I know how to install applications in Fedora 18  using rpm files and yum command but in some cases there are applications that come in a .tar file, how should I install those applications?

Regards.

You can extract the tar files with the tar command -

mkdir /tmp/test
tar -xvf abc.tar /tmp/test

Open in new window
