Make sure you have a recent version of java installed
"sudo aptitude install openjdk-6-jre" Once that finishes downloading/installing, go into the directory in which megatunix is installed. Double click on the file "MegaLogViewer.sh" which sets up a couple of runtime arguments before it attempts to run the actual jar file
(although "java -jar MegaLogViewer.jar" also works)

I guess this is how normal people feel when they try to use a computer...
I think I'm gonna try a regular Ubuntu install and see how it performs.
As far as megatunix goes, try this download Megatunix.deb
Download it, and open up a terminal. Navigate to the folder where you downloaded it, and run "sudo dpkg -i megatunix_0.9.18_i386.deb", which will install the package for you. I'm pretty sure I got it to install on vanilla ubuntu linux without needing to satisfy any crazy dependancies.
Also,depending on what kind of computer you are using, might I suggest Xubuntu? It utilizes xfce instead of kde/gnome. Much lighter weight for faster starts and better desktop response.
Final note: I've never been super happy with megatunix. The newest version of Tunerstudio-MS is stable, and looks bad-*** depending on the gauges you select
I get all sorts of looks when people drive by and see this on my laptop in the passenger's seat:
Hope this helps
