That being said, double-clicking the "squeak.sh" in the extracted
all-in-one folder should get everything running, or give you error messages

Double-clicking doesn't work in my Fedora 19 Linux. Must do this instead:
1) Find the icon that looks like a terminal; open it to type a command on
the "command line"
2) Go to the Squeak-All-In-One folder using the cd (change directory)
2) Type "./squeak.sh &" (omit the quotes) and the enter key
