can't you just apt-get limewire?, to install a deb file you have downloaded you use the dpkg -i command.

Go to the Synaptic Package Manager (if you don't have it run "sudo apt-get install synaptic") and do a search for "Java". From there, just look around for the Sun Java Runtime Environment and mark it - that should also mark some other packages. Then just click "Apply"! - I would do it via apt-get, but I've forgotten what the JRE was called!

As for installing Limewire, I also have some problems....

edit: You can't apt-get Limewire: it's not even in the extra repositories (at least not for Ubuntu...)

As per LQ's rules, please don't keep making threads on pretty much the same thing.

Check if you have the JRE installed already, by opening a terminal and typing "java -version" (without the quotes). If you see something like

"java version "1.5.0_03"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_03-b07)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_03-b07, mixed mode, sharing)",

then you have it installed already.

Interesting...

There's no Sun JRE package for Debian? How can this be? There's one for Ubuntu...so there must be one for Debian! :S Oh well, good luck! I'm using AMule now - it was much easier to install.

download the LimeWireLinux.run file (or whatever the hell they call it) bring up a terminal (xterm, konsole, gnome-terminal etc), find the file and assuming it's called what I said it's called, type:
Code:
chmod +x LimeWireLinux.run
to make it executable. The as root (type su to become root) do:
Code:
./LimeWireLinux
to install or perhaps just unpack it. I forget which. This will either unpack to a subdirectory of the current directory or will ask you where to install. Like I said, it's been a while since I installed. Then move to this new directory and type: sh runLime.sh

This is not how you use LQ.org. You have already been told basic instrustions, and there are many many threads here that have the same details already. Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
