Can't remember where .tar came from, but people usually call them tarballs.
the Goog says it represented tape archive.

The .gz represents gzip.
Basically a compression program.

Yep... good ole tape archives. Back in the days when we backed up to tape.
Still used in some data centers even today. Nobody archives to tape anymore
but we can still archive to disk.

can't stop, got tea to cook and out for the night, but on

sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)

Do I type in uname or something else?
I am currently on Elementary OS 4.0 Juno, and

Code:
[email protected]:~$ uname -r

# (comment) gives

4.15.0-62-generic
[email protected]:~$
... so for "uname -r" I would substitute

4.15.0-62-generic

HTH

I know this is a slight divergence but it is to allow me to get better acquainted with using terminal.
Since Linux is new to me and when something is new I tend to be slightly apprehensive when I do things, so I will before tackling the driver install I will install AOO on my machine to boost my confidence and get a bit more acquainted with the commands on the terminal.
I know that I will have to untar the file first
What commands follow after doing that?
@wizardfromoz Thanks for that written it down in my little book where I write down commands and what their function is, for reference later.
