are you trying to run the setup program as root (su in a console)?

if so, just open a console without su-ing and try again

i just went to downloads.tucows.com to find what i could about mm for linux; it looks as though this program runs through wine so i'm not sure if this means you need to have wine installed or that it was built with the winelib....

it was released in 2001, so it may just be that it (or the gui) is not compatible with the current Xfree86

*edit: my suggesting is that you download and install wine, find a semi-recent version of mm jukebox for windows and install it through wine
