//GNU tar supports gzip/gunzip, tar czf will create a .tgz.

I have to use navigator to download it, I shift-click on
the link, and save it to disk. That same partition is 
mounted under linux, and I copy it to /usr/something,
and then I can't gunzip it.
(Downloading has to be down from from windows (of
which I know nothing at all, it's not my computer,
and I have always had non-msdos/mswin computers.
Maybe there is some setting wrong?).

This same technique works with almost everything else.
Come to think of it - it also doesn't work with the icon-
collections (icons.themes.org). They cause problems too.
Everything else I downloaded this way has always decompressed
without problems.

I just want to know why, ASCP is not that important :-)
