"will not launch" sounds a little bit vague

here's output from tn5250 launched from a terminal (in ubuntu breezy)

$ tn5250
tn5250 - TCP/IP 5250 emulator
  tn5250 [options] HOST[:PORT]
   To connect using ssl prefix HOST with 'ssl:'.  Example:
      tn5250 +ssl_verify_server ssl:as400.example.com
------ cut loads of options ------

did you try to launch it from a terminal or did you create a launcher ?

grtjs, albi
