Installation for Linux is easy, although we don't have many Linux machines to test on, so please send your experiences and any improvements. Thanks Melissa for the feedback so far.
1. Contact us for an install package.
2. Run the installer
3. You'll need to copy tools.jar into the root of the VEW directory - same place as the other JAR libraries. The tools.jar file is in the lib directory of your Java installation - which seems to vary by default between some Linux installations. On Mandriva 2008, we found it in /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-sun-1.6.0.05/lib
4. Also on some breeds of Linux, you may need to chmod 755 *.sh to make the scripts runable.
5. Shortcuts should have been created for compiling, and running the VEW - compile it first, then run it!
