If you have downloaded the Linux version of whatever viewer you are using, it should install automatically.  When installation is finished, it ought to ask whether you want to launch the viewer, and then should do it.  If that is not happening, check to be sure that you do not have a firewall or antivirus program that is blocking the viewer from running.  See http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Configure_your_software_firewall and http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Configuring_your_firewall .  Notice that the second of those wiki pages gives some Linux-specific instructions that may be helpful.

You still have to have a 3D graphics card in the computer, even if you run Linux.  Without the GPU the installer will silently fail when it tries to figure out what APIs exist to communicate with the card.  Do you have a 3D card installed and all the linux drivers for that card correctly integrated into your system?
