Files missing from the Linux archive
On the "How to instal" page you say to run "java -jar bliss-install.jar" but there is no "bliss-install.jar. Also, you say to run it by going to the "bin" folder, but there's no such folder. What package did you put for download? :)
I updated the instructions page to refer to the correct file name.
I also updated the linux help page as Ron suggested.

The instructions for Linux should also document the console mode, for installations on Linux systems without a GUI, like VortexBox.
Hey! There are two things going on:
1) The name of the file is incorrect, as you mentioned
2) The file, although it can be opened as a zip file, cannot merely be extracted, it MUST be run by Java as it is a full installer
If you go to the Linux download you should receive a file called (at the moment) bliss-install-20100220.jar . The number '20100220' is the build number and will change from build to build. So, instead, run:
java -jar bliss-install-20100220.jar
This is an installer and will give you the chance to choose a directory etc. Once the installer has run, you'll see the bin/ folder in the directory you chose to install bliss in.
The file you download is 'zip encoded' which means it can be opened in a zip file explorer however you cannot simply unzip the contents and attempt to use from there.
It would be possible to create a 'pure' zip archive without the installer. If this would be useful, I suggest opening a new suggestion.
If all this is ok, I'll update the instructions, thanks!
