Hi John!

It is pretty simple to get Jalview working... 
You have to edit the file Jalview. (this a kind of config and exec file
for the program)
The file has to look like this:
(if you are using bash)
#!/bin/bash   

export CLASSPATH=<the path you have the jalwiew.jar file>
export PATH=$PATH:<the path you have your jalview dir>
export JAVA_EXE=<the path you have java installed>

$JAVA_EXE jalview.AlignFrame $1 File $2 

That´s all.

Alternative is maybe clustalx for linux...
