If there are any error messages or relevant logs, post them below:

tar.gz is an archive format like zip or rar. you need to unzip it to get to the installer.
create a new folder and put the archive in it, then run a terminal from this directory and put tar xvzf FILENAME.tar.gz replacing the name of your file.

Then there should be a install file like “” this you can run in the terminal like so ./ you need to make the installer runable before (chmod x) right click it and give it the permission to execute

then follow its instructions

This method is good for DĂ©bian but no for Parrot. Strange no ?

please make your point clear. did you try this above and it didnt work? what exactly was the problem?
or are you asking if it will work? basicly the commands will work in parrot if your directory paths are correct and as i told you the must be chmod x (executeable)
