To install VUE 2.2.8 on FreeBSD:

  1. Install java
  2. Download VUE Generic version at
  3. Uncompress the zip file to get VUE.jar
  4. Run java -jar /path/to/VUE.jar

On my FreeBSD-7.1-RELEASE, there's a bit trouble with VUE's menu. I have to hold the left button to get the right menu, or the menu disappears immediately after any click.
