Jmol runs without problems on Linux machines using Sun's java virtual machines, both as Applet as well as Application. Running the application has not been tried with other virtual machines or compilers, like Kaffe.
Binary Jmol Packages
Binary package are available for Debian, see Debian.
- What I would very much like to see, is a KDE GUI for Jmol. That is, a GUI that is completely independant of Swing and thus runs with free virtual machines, e.g. Kaffe. -- Egon Willighagen
