    Whole file .tar.gz
    If your tar file is compressed using a gzip compressor, use this command to uncompress it.

    tar xvzf [filenamehere].tar.gz

    Should there be special software for dzip. Because when I do it with the terminal manually I have this:

    root @ kali: ~ tar xvzf k3b-18.08.3.tar.gz
    tar (child): k3b-18.08.3.tar.gz: Can not open: No such file or directory
    tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
    tar: Child returned status 2
    tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

    By cons when I move the file from my office to the terminal works:

    root @ kali: ~ # tar xvzf '/root/Office/k3b-18.08.3.tar.gz'

    Then what should I do

    Why is your subject 'Problem installing a tar.bz2 or tar.gz file' when you downloaded the .iso?
    Which .iso did you download?

    What system are you using to make a CD? Windows or Linux or Mac?
