    Ok, webos quick install is a java runtime (jar) file, so, you need Java to run it. Download it for your distro, if using Ubuntu, go to the software manager and look for it.
    Also you need the "driver" to access the Pre, novacomd. This file can be downloaded from Palm (go to the palm developer page, and look for the linux SDK, download only novacomd), go here
    Last but not least, you need the webOS Doctor file for your Pre. Go Here.

    You should reboot your Linux machine for the novacomd service to start. After that you should be able to run webos quick install. Try with right click and using "run with java" or something similar.

    Good luck
