yes i just installed limewire again as a matter of fact. What i did was i got java working to the point where it works with open office.org and the web.
Then i downloaded the LimeWireInstall.bin
(version 4.0 now)
and in the terminal i used the "cd foldername"
to cd into the directory containing the file.
once you get there type in the following:
sh LimeWireInstall.bin (or whatever the filename is.bin)
from then on it will launch an installer to do the installation.
Pay attention to where it installs for you wlil need to launch from this directory.
Once its done, go there and in the terminal type in
it should work fine as long as JRE is installed properly.. if not you did something wrong in java install.
