Download the file to a folder on your HDD, open the terminal and use the following commands (with root permissions):
Install: tar xzf nameofsoftmakerpackage.tgz
uninstall: start our script (uninstallsmoffice)

Ok, to make it easy, do the following steps:
1. Copy the .tgz file to your Desktop
2. In the terminal type "su" (without ") and press enter
3. Type in your root password
4. Change to the desktop via "cd Desktop" (again, without " and please write Desktop, not desktop)
5. Now try again to install the Office via tar xzf nameofsoftmakerpackage.tgz

Does it work now?

Nameofsoftmakerpackage.tgz was just a synonym for the real name of the .tgz file. It should be name softmaker-office-2008.tgz or something similar. Please look how your file is named.

Linux Mint is a Debian based Linux distribution.
It might have been easier to just download the deb-Package and double click it.
