Dnscrypt-proxy how to install on ubuntu desktop in a simple way

how to install dnscrypt-proxy-1.2.0.tar.bz2 on ubuntu desktop
and what about (dnscrypt-proxy-1.2.0.tar.bz2.sig) is it also needed to complete the installation of the .bz2 and how to deal with it?


clearly detailed answer as I'm new to linux. even the explanation on this link is not clear to me https://github.com/opendns/dnscrypt-proxy

where should I download it? on desktop or on home? and how to extract it and install it?. Also is there a ready to install .deb package?. because I have converted the above mentioned bz2 to .deb but it did not install properly and it is wrapped up with a lock.

It will be installed on:
Ubuntu 12.10 Desktop
Intel® Core™ i3 CPU M 330 @ 2.13GHz × 4
OS type 32-bit
