OOPS, you don't seem to have a valid JRE. FrostWire works best with Sun JRE available at http://www.java.com [java = Error]
You need to upgrade to JRE 1.5.x or newer from http://www.java.com
OOPS, unable to locate java exec in  /usr/lib/  hierarchy
You need to upgrade to JRE 1.5.x or newer from http://www.java.com
Java exec found in  /usr/java/jre1.6.0_14/bin/
Suitable java version found  [/usr/java/jre1.6.0_14/bin/java = 1.6.0_14]
Configuring environment...
Loading FrostWire:
CLASSPATH SET TO:
Unable to access jarfile FrostWire.jar

/usr/java/jre1.6.0_14/bin/
******************************************************************
Something went wrong with FrostWire.
Maybe you're using the wrong version of Java?
(FrostWire is tested against and works best with with Sun's JRE, Java 1.4+)
The version of Java in your PATH is:
Error occurred during initialization of VM
java/lang/NoClassDefFoundError: java/lang/Object
Hope it will give some clue what is going on.
Please help I'm new to linux.

I'm running *buntu 8.04 and Java 1.6.0.14 that lives at /usr/lib/java-6-sun-1.6.0.14. The executable is jre.

I am ALSO running kaffe 1.4.2 which lives at /usr/bin. The executable is named java.

The two seem compatible. OOo sees the genuine Sun Java while everything else sees the kaffe imposter.
In the above quote the genuine Sun Java Runtime Environment is provided by an executable name jre.

Default Java is provided by an open source imposter named kaffe. The executable for this is named java.

You may want to install kaffe as I did. I cannot vouch for the performance because I disable java in my web browser and I rarely run a Java application. I have had no problems using kaffe the few times that I have run a Java based application.
