Smile Moving NM Collector to Linux

Thanks for any advice. Obviously, I'm new to Linux.
For Linux you have to start NM Collector using a command line tool. How you get to that tool varies by distribution. However, once you figure out how to get to a command line, cd to your NM Collector directory (verify that you see NMCollectorJE_linux.jar in the directory) and issue this command:

Java –jar NMCollectorJE_linux.jar

Please see this page for more an example of what it should look like:

Thank you.
