I've just downloaded a file called "Yousician.tar.gz". I understand it's a compacted file and it contains other files and folders. I can extract the contents with no problems. I wonder, though, how I can run the software. I really have no experience with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (which is the one installed in my PC) or any other version of it.
Can anyone help, please?
Download archive from https://app.yousician.com/signup
Unpack it to any folder
3.Go to this folder
4.Run “Yousician Launcher” file
Tip: if your OS version is 64 bit, run this command in terminal
sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libncurses5:i386 libstdc++6:i386 zlib1g:i386 libglu1:i386 libxcursor1:i386 libasound2:i386 libasound2-plugins:i386 libxrandr2:i386

This answer is a supplement to Andrew's answer as I followed a different route for my install.
Do the following in a terminal window.
cdto the Download folder.
- Extract the archive using
tar -xvf Yousician.tar.gz
- Next we will move it to
sudo mv Yousician\ Launcher/ /opt/yousician
- And make a shortcut to the launcher using
sudo ln -sf /opt/yousician/Yousician\ Launcher /usr/bin/yousician
We also want a Unity dash entry so run
gedit ~/.local/share/applications/Yousician.desktop, then paste the following
[Desktop Entry] Name=Yousician Comment=Start the Yousician Launcher Exec="yousician" Icon=/opt/yousician/Yousician.app/Yousician_Data/Resources/UnityPlayer.png Terminal=false Type=Application Categories=Game; Name[en]=Yousician
And that is it. You should now find it in the Unity Dash (might need a restart).
PS. for a 64-bit check the tip in Andrew's answer (based on the official guide).
