azureus .jar installation guidance


Hi, I only installed linux recently and am very new. I looked around but have no clue how to install a .jar file. I did, however, get the tar.gz file for firefex installed w/ Installing Firefox in Linux

Could anyone explain how to install a .jar file and where is a good place to put it via steps?

On SourceForge.net: Files I installed the Azureus3.0.1.6.jar to the desktop b/c it looks like the most recent and appropriate. I choose "save to disk" which is default by firefox..

Basic system info: Fedora, KDE

It could be a lot easier, actually. If you have your repositories set up, all you need to is

yum install azureus

and Azureus will be installed for you. If you don't like the command line, you can also go to Applications > Add/Remove , locate azureus, tick the box and click on "Apply". Same result.

If you can't find any azureus under Add/Remove, it means you are missing a few repositories.

Oh yum has issues currently, like when you go to uninstall openoffice, it thinks firefox is a dependency and try to remove it. I hit cancel. 'N' in the shell.

Plus I wanna try the source file way. The knowledge might come in handy later.

OK, just place the jar wherever you like. I recommend /opt or /ur/local. Azureus will run without compiling. All you need to do is cd to the directory in question, extract azureus, cd into the resulting folder and launch azureus:

./azureus

Hey this is really confusing at first:

on one page it says
"To get Azureus to start on linux you need to download SWT."
http://azureus.sourceforge.net/faq.php#1

on another page it says
"1) Install JRE from here."
http://azureus.sourceforge.net/howto_linux.php

which do i install first, am i suppose to install both?

Both I imagine, the order doesn't matter. I don't recall ever installing SWT myself but the JRE is absolutely indispensible. You'll also need to edit /etc/profile and add this:

export J2RE_HOME=/path/to/JRE

and then log out or do

source /etc/profile

from the command line. However, if you installed java when you installed Fedora, you may not even need to do that (Fedora offers a JRE of its own).
