    You don't install .jar files, you just run them from wherever you have downloaded them to using the java command.

    ... which is

    Code:
    java -jar /path/to/file.jar
    This assumes that you have Java installed. If you don't, you have to install Java.

    You can check if you have it just by running the Java version command from terminal.
    Code:
    java -version
    Please mark your thread as solved if you get a satisfactory response.

    To install Java just open a terminal and run the following 3 commands...
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer
    Source...
