Usually, but not always, after the tar.xz file has been untarred and decompressed, there are files named README and INSTALL in the main directory created by the decompression, which will usually propose or provide instructions for installation, provide details about dependencies and have some text about whatever the developer thinks might be useful to include. Some of these files can be detailed, but some can be terse, but all can be worth reading and they may provide the answers on how to install that particular software. Sometimes however, these files don't exist, or the information in them is unclear, so one is left to research the matter.how can someone write down the basic line of instruction how install a Tar.xz, in terminal.
i have the file in Downloads.

It's a good thing I found Deadbeef, it's just a better music player... especially to summon with "Play some music" button on Raven from Budgie desktop. <3
