I'm not sure where you got this tarball from so I'm not sure whether it
is the right one or why it doesn't have setup.py. The GNU Health
downloads page[1] has multiple tarballs available. For now I'll assume
you're trying to install gnuhealth-client.

$ wget https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/health/gnuhealth-client-3.4.4.tar.gz
$ tar xf gnuhealth-client-3.4.4.tar.gz
$ cd gnuhealth-client-3.4.4/
$ python setup.py build
$ sudo python setup.py install

After this, I was able to launch the program by running

$ gnuhealth-client

> And again my old question: should all commands be written together?

You input them one at a time. Is that what you're asking?
