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.

Instead of using the proprietary Limewire program, why not use a Linux native torrent client. It will do the exact same thing, you simply must go with a browser to torrent websites, find the torrent file that you want in the page, copy the link, and paste it into the torrent client. These native clients use much less system resources, and don't contain spyware. LameWire.(Notice the play on words there, lol) LimeWire causes security vulnerabilities and could get you hacked.
If your using KDE, try Ktorrent, , bittorrent works, Gtorrent, there's a number of them. I prefer BitTorrent. It's light weight, simple to use, and works on just about any Distribution.
So tell me what distribution you are using. Ubuntu? Fedora, SuSe? Then I can help you more.
1) Visit http://www.limewire.com/download/version.php and download the package for Other Systems.
2) Extract the downloaded zip file.
3) Add a link on your desktop to the limewire folder:
Right-click the desktop, select "Create launcher" and enter
Command: java -jar /home/your_username/LimeWire/LimeWire.jar
(note: this assumes that the zip file was extracted to your home directory; if not, you will have to make changes to the command as required)
iv just downloaded frostwire and java and done a java test and its all good but it still wont load i tryed to runfrostwire and it say install patch wen i click ok it says the patch file unavalible ???? dont no were im going wrong or if i have 2 run it differently??? help
Check whether your OS has synaptic package manager. If so, you should be able to remove it by unchecking the box for frostwire.
If not, try this in a terminal: sudo rpm -e frostwire (you may need to specify the version number; this can be found out - if rpm works at all - by running sudo rpm -q frostwire first).
Note: please, use proper English.
