Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

As it's a shell script it won't open by just pointing the link at it.
When I try the link "in terminal" it shows up for a few seconds then disappears.
I can start Azureus no problem from the cli no problem.
do you call the script with an absolute file name? If not, try adding the full path.
Also, try using the very same command on the command line and look out for any errors. If there are any, post them here, please.
I've tried using the full path including the .sh at the end and everything.
I don't get any errors because when I start a terminal in the directory and call up ./azureus it starts up fine.
I am confused: "./azureus" does not contain any .sh at the end? are you sure you are calling the correct command at all? ./azureus executes an executable called azureus (and nothing more and nothing less) in the current directory.
I was wrong about this being the wrong file. It probably was the right one in the first place. However, I cannot imagine, why it would not work adding the command sh before the path to the script. (the thing we tried first)
By the way: Are you certain, you added shbefore the path to the script? This thought just occured to me, when I was going over the steps we have tried (I am wondering, because your idea of adding ".sh" came up right after that).
It dosn't do anything because it has to be run from a terminal
Does it say, it cannot be launched from the Desktop? Else, how did you come to this conclusion?
Anyways, if this does not work, I had a look at the azureus website:
If Azureus does not show up after a minute, you can try starting it manually:
GTK: java -cp swt.jar:swt-pi.jar:systray4j.jar:Azureus2.jar -Djava.library.path=./ org.gudy.azureus2.ui.swt.Main
Try using this command in "link to application" instead of the link to the azureus script file.
ps: I have no clue why it wont work the usual way, however. You can ICQ or Jabber me (see my profile) if you would like to work this out in a more direct way.
azureus is a java bit torrent client, right? and it uses a graphical user interface, right again? (These are real questions)
If I am correct about the above, you dont need to launch it in a terminal as long as it is correctly interpreted (i.e. the program sh (or bash, ...) is called to interpret the file).
There is another idea: what happens, when you click on the file named azureus in the directory (not a link, the real thing)?
Open with dialog? make sure it is executable for the user:
try this in the terminal: ls -lx azureus
if azureus is listed, everything should be fine (damn!)
else: chown <user>:users * -R
where <user> is your username chmod u+rx azureus
