I suspect that the .tar.gz file contains the source code for the app. If so, then you'd have to compile the app yourself, along with all the dependencies. You might find it easier to download the following package files and copy them to your thumb drive:python-wicd_18.104.22.168-2ubuntu1_all.debwicd-daemon_22.214.171.124-2ubuntu1_all.debwicd-gtk_126.96.36.199-2ubuntu1_all.debwicd_188.8.131.52-2ubuntu1_all.deb
Those are the packages that Synaptic would download for you. If you choose to go that route then let us know once you have downloaded the files and we can proceed from there.
