Good question. When I try to download the archive of it, it either gives me an error or opens as an empty archive.

There's a tar package for download HERE.  When you open the app it asks for your username/password.

Just double click the download (same as you would a .deb file) and choose Extract from the resulting window.   Then launch the app by clicking the cog-shaped icon that says SoulseekQT-2016-1-17-64bit.

EDIT: If it's easier for you open your terminal and run
Code: [Select]
cd ~/Downloads
(the above command assumes you downloaded the file to your Downloads directory)  Your prompt should look something like yourname@computer ~/Downloads $.  At that prompt run
Code: [Select]
tar xvf SoulseekQt-2016-1-17-64bit.tgz
.  Then use the File Manager (nemo) to navigate to your Downloads directory and double click the above mentioned icon. 

You can create a desktop link if you want to our create a launcher you can pin to your panel if you prefer.  Or you can just leave it in the Downloads folder and access it from there (probably not the best idea, though).
