Hello,

Apologies, I believe I asked this in the wrong part of the forum before -- then realized it's more of a beginner question than a Xara question.

I downloaded XaraXtreme and tried to unarchive it using tar -xvvf and then by using unzip - and I get either no result or an error. Would anyone familiar with how do do this install mind to help a somewhat new-to-linux person?

Thanks Much,

kace

tar --help tells me:
-j, --bzip2 filter the archive through bzip2

So
tar -xjvf thefile.tbz2
should work.

You also can use Midnight Commander or MToolsFM I think.
