There is a common problem affecting MPIDE installation under Linux. Some manual setup may be required (at least until packages with dependency information become available.) Details are available on the wiki:
Here are step by step instructions that should work for most users:
tar xvzfp mpide-0023-linux-20120903.tgz
sudo apt-get install librxtx-java
Close the terminal window and open a new one (so the new library path setting takes effect)
Start the MPIDE
Select a directory to store sketches (pick any directory or create a new one)
Observe the MPIDE GUI appears
At this point your MPIDE install should be good to go. Try a few sample sketches, and have fun! If you run into any problems, post them here and we'll try to help.

I also found that I had to install the binutils-avr package as the IDE incorrectly attempts to use the avr-size program to get the pic32 image size after linking.
The library path stuff was not needed. Seem to me if messing with paths is necessary, that something is broken.
