Hi!

Software is usually installed through a package manager in linux, not by downloading things manually. You can read about the GUI tool which does this in Linux Mint: http://helpsite.org/install-software-in-linux/

You might also want to read about apt-get, the CLI underlying frontend.

Greetings,
Sven

edit: meh, not the most professional guide I linked there, but it should do.
