In /etc/profile add

JAVA_HOME=the_complete_path_to_my_java_directory



EXPORT JAVA_HOME


i.e JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/j2re_blah_blah_blah

logout

log back in again

LimeWire will be looking for an environment variable JAVA_HOME
set to the path of your java directory.

If it doesn't find a JAVA_HOME variable it doesn't find java unless there is an other way.


Just to change

it should have been

export JAVA_HOME

not

EXPORT JAVA_HOME
:


Side note: You have installed Java, yeah?

And if Java is installed, you may also need to add Java bin directory to your PATH. In either your /etc/profile or ~/.bashrc you can add

PATH=$PATH:/directory/to/jre/bin
export PATH


You can check if the new path has taken hold by entering $PATH in the console. If the java /bin directory is there, you're good to go. If not, close the console and open a new one.

You do this so when Limewire tries to execute, it can find the JRE files.
