You should not execute the file.
1. Go into the 1.5.10 and set the jar file under permissions to executible.
2. Do the same thing to the files under Lib
3. open the jar file under 1.51.10 and wait, takes around 2 minutes to

Yes, I have tried powered hub also...even made well regulated power supply
myself so my guess is power was not problem...by the way I have a feeling
that usb problems have been less since I updated Raspberry's os. (But audio
receive quality is still a bit poor) 

Gunnar, By the way... maybe it is my bat english but I am little confused
about your instruction. I have download 1.5.10 
From http://www.crusefalk.se/jpskmailinstall/

But it is executable file, when I try to execute it, pi gets busy for a
while but nothing seems to happend. If I try executing from root terminal,
it says "binary file cannot be executed"... so I cant find any  "jpskmail
lib"  so I can not  open javapskmail.jar :D I feel stupid :D

Should this installer be runnable and make some directory containing those
javapskmail.jar etc. ? (I have made permission to run this file.) This is
what I meant, I can not find 1.5.10 jar files.

I can see previous version I have tried while ago have been jpskmail
installer 1.6.10, it do exactly same, nothing:)

I suspect it is a power issue. 

Try plugging a powered usb hub into the PI and the sound card into that.

The recommended power supply is at least 1amp for the Pi but it only
supports powering a level less than that for devices.

Other people with similar problems have cured it by replacing the power
supply or using the powered usb hub.

Well, I haven't got jpskmail working on raspberry yet. Maybe because I
didn't find 1.5.10 jar files :D So I tried 2.0.22. Suppose I just make
something wrong... 

I have noticed about pi and fldigi, I cannot get WEFAX received as well as
with ordinary laptop,  with same usb soundcard (cheap dongle). Picture is
not as good. I think "slant" is not stable when using raspberry pi. But it
somewhat works, fun!  Also tried receiving NAVTEX, it works also. I have
received quite a lot of 518 khz NAVTEX from Mediterranean Sea here in inner
Finland with pi. 

I suppose it is some issue on usb in pi, not sure. (could also be something
simple like dirty power or ground loop...) Also soundcard gets grazy quite
often when used with pi, and gets only fuzzy gibberish on waterwall. 
By the way, It have never worked if I also have network connected, wifi or
ethernet. That is why I mostly susbect usb driver problem.

Have tested with Pskmail client 1.5.10 and fldigi on Pi B (512). So far it
works but CPU is 90%.
Will test together with the IC-7200 when i have some more time.
How to test:
From http://www.crusefalk.se/jpskmailinstall/ 
Follow instruktions for Ubuntu to install fldigi and download 1.5.10 make
jar files allowed to be executed even those in the LIB (don´t know if that
is a must)
After starting fldigi go to the jpskmail lib and open javapskmail.jar, it
will take some time to start!!
It would me very nice if anyone that has a working rig and a Pi close by
could do some test and see if it works!!
