I'm trying to install OpenJUMP in Ubuntu 12.04. They mentioned that it can be installed and run on Linux:

From the bin directory, run the starter for your operating system


But for the life of me I can't find the bin directory in the source. Does anybody know how to install this?

I don't think it's in any one of the repos either.

To find the Bin directory you have to download the and then extract it, then you will find the Bin directory inside the extracted directory.
