If you want to run a program or script then you first need to make sure that the execute flag is set for that file (ls -l and chmod). Then you can use ./filename in a terminal window with the directory open where that file is located. If is is an archive then you first need to extract the files. A file manager like Krusader or Nautilus or Dolphin makes such changes easier.
