The bin installer was really old and didn't do much more than simply unzipping the .zip version of Jalbum (available on the download page too). That's why it is no longer included. For Ubuntu or other Debinan distributions, the .deb package is far better. OpenSuSE users can find specific packages for OpenSuSE here: http://packman.links2linux.de/package/Jalbum
Well, this is pretty frustrating. I've been happily using Jalbum for over two years years on my SuSE Linux system. Now I go to update from 8.5 to 8.7 and you've suddenly switched to a .deb file, with no mention of it in the release notes. Even the main download page still has instructions on installing the bin file. I had to go digging around through the forum to find this message. I tried using the RPM from packman, but found it has a bunch of dependencies I don't have installed (jakarta, jlayer, jsch, metatdata-extractor). So then I had to go hunting for the zip file which is NOT easy to find on your web site. You should at least update the main Linux download page to inform people you have switched to a deb installation, and provide a link to the zip file and/or packman for those of us who aren't Debian users.
I'm sorry for this frustration. With the added size of our site, it is also a larger project to modify the download page unfortunately. I can promise you that I've told my team members to update the download page for the next site update.
The version packed for OpenSuSE by Pac-man has dependencies as you've noticed. I've asked Pac-man to skip relying on external dependencies and just pack the self-contained .zip version of Jalbum as an .rpm file, but he insists that there should be no duplicate code. Well well, that's a distribution policy I guess.
