I can't generalize to "most distros", but I tried installing the void linux `J` package and found out that:

1) it only contains the CLI J shell, not the graphical environment

2) adding packages is difficult due to filesystem permissions(?) or path(?) problems. I'm not sure what the particulars here were, but I couldn't use the `pacman` manager to add stuff to the system J installation

3) compiling the QT IDE on top of the system J package + an army of QT5 development libraries still failed at some stage far along the compilation process.

I figured I'm much better off just using the prepackaged download J software offer on the website.
