Greetings Tim, When you downloaded the IDV, did you download the Linux installer for IDV, or the Generic installer for IDV for systems with their own Java and Java 3D? Also, which version of Java are you using? The IDV needs java 1.6, so if you are using java 1.7, that would explain why the Java Web Start isn't working.
