I want to install a
tar.gz file downloaded from here. I tried but I got an error.
I open the terminal in the folder and I'm trying to install.
Here is a screenshot of the file manager, showing part of the archive contents.
I have Debian 10.

You'll need to extract three of the
*.deb files out of the
cpu-x_4.1.0+15.1_amd64.deb, the main program
cpuidtool_0.5.0_amd64.deba tool used by the CPU-X program
libcpuid15_0.5.0_amd64.deb, a library used by the tool
The rest are debugging symbol files (
-dbgsym) and development files (
-dev); those are not needed for running the program, only for debugging it or using the
libcpuid library in another programming project.
Once you have the the three files extracted, run this command in the directory you've placed them, as root:
apt install ./cpuidtool_0.5.0_amd64.deb ./libcpuid15_0.5.0_amd64.deb ./cpu-x_4.1.0+15.1_amd64.deb
...and that's it. The
./ in front of the package names is important: it tells
apt to not try and find the named packages from a repository as normal, but use the package files you have right there.
After that, you should be able to run the program by either running the
cpu-x command (as a regular user), or by finding the program in your GUI menus (System category, probably).
