problem running limewire


its probably really simple but im having this problem. i installed limewire through a mandrake RPM repository and when i try to run it i get this:
Code:
[adam@localhost Programs]$ cd /
[adam@localhost /]$ limewire
/usr/bin/limewire: error: failed to set JAVACMD
/usr/bin/limewire: line 135: -mx32m: command not found
[adam@localhost /]$
i figured that ment i should install java, so i did but i still get the same error.

You may need to setup your PATH variable.

To do so:

1. In a terminal type (Make sure you are in your home directory):
Code:
vi .bash_profile
2. Find the line that looks like:
Code:
PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin
3. Edit that like to look like:
Code:
PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin:<path to where you installed java here>/bin
That may fix the problem...

is java in your path(PATH environment variable)? i suppose you use the default shell which might be bash.

look at the file /home/username/.bash_profile or /home/username/.bashrc

echo $PATH;
which java

so i saved it so it looked like this:
# .bash_profile

# Get the aliases and functions
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
. ~/.bashrc
fi

# User specific environment and startup programs

PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin:/usr/share/java/bin

export PATH
unset USERNAME

then tried again. same thing. there isnt a bin file in the java folder though. should there be one?
