Hi,

From the commmand line unpack the file with tar -xvjf filename , then cd into the new directory created and run ./azureus and follow the config wizard

Hope that helps

1. Save the Azureus file somewhere, For Examnple: /home/you/bin
2. Open a terminal (xterm, bash, aterm--whatever you have) and type cd /home/you/bin (or just cd bin since the terminal should default to your home directory when you open it).
3. In the terminal type tar- xvjf filename.tar.bz2 (replace 'filename' with the actual filename of course).
4. Type ls (this will show you files and folders in that directory, there should be a new one called Azureus, or something similar. Let's pretent it is called Azureus.
5. Type cd Azureus (cd is change directory, so now you are in the /home/you/bin/Azureus directory)
6. Type ./azureus and follow the instructions.


Not working? Read the README file, or the INSTALL file.
You'll need the java runtime libraries for Azureus to work.
You really should read up on using the Terminal, for your success on Linux depends on it.

ctrl+alt+f1 or just open a terminal in x. if you use kde it should say "Terminal session" in your kde menu under "action", just pick one.
