comment Extracting a tar.gz file returns, “This does not look like a tar archive.”
I tried gzip -d ldtp_3.5.0.orig.tar.gz and I got the message gzip: ldtp_3.5.0.orig.tar: unknown suffix -- ignored gzip: on.gz: No such file or directory gzip: the.gz: No such file or directory gzip: ldtp_3.5.0.orig.tar: unknown suffix -- ignored . After this I tried tar -xvzf ldtp_3.5.0.orig.tar and it worked! Thanks a ton!

I tried the first command gzip -d ldtp_3.5.0.orig.tar.gz and I (oddly) got a .tar file. However, when I tried tar -xvf ldtp_3.5.0.orig.tar I got an error saying: tar: v: Cannot open: No such file or directory tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
