Hello and thanks for your question.

The setup.py file is located in the directory where you unzip the tar.gz archive.
The unzipped files for the installation should -probably- be found in your download directory.

Open a terminal and then:
 - use the ls command to list;
 - use the cd command to change directory.

I hope this helps enough.

Thank you very much Alfred
it was a great help and a good lesson for me because I did not think that i should be in the directory to run the installation
Thank you
