If you don't want to register, version 1.2 can be downloaded from Sun's site. But you'll only be able to run jLug 1.1.
For either version you'll need to pick a suitable format.

If you're using a PC, and your video card supports it, then pick the OpenGL version.
For Linux systems, once more, a trip to Blackdown is in order.
LDraw Parts List - LDraw is the original Lego(tm) modelling software. Created by the late James Jessiman, it includes a full set of data files describing all the different Lego(tm) bricks. As of version 1.3, jLug can download and install these part files for you. See the jLug section for details.
Pre-version 1.3 you will need to download and unzip the base set of part files, and then the updated part files from LDraw's parts list page. This page has incremental updates and a complete update, containing every part modified since 1997. Get the complete update the first time around. It doesn't matter which directory they are installed into, as long as both go into the same one.

Select the File->Preferences menu to display the preferences dialog. Here you need to enter the three directories into which the part files were emptied. Wherever they where unzipped to there should be:
Add those directories, giving the full path name. Finally, set the colour definitions file. This is the
colour.ini file which should be in the jLug directory.
Restart jLug and you should now have a full list of parts down the left-hand side. You're ready to go!
If you've got it all working congratulations!!.
