Unhappy Frostwire instalation problems


Well it's not really much of a PROBLEM but I don't know how to do it. On my friends KDE (Kubuntu) we're trying to install Frostwire. So we download the Linux Ubuntu version and then that's it. We double-click on the file and nothing happens. I also tried working in the terminal thing but got no where. Can some body please teach me how to install programs (Frostwire) on Kubuntu? (KDE desktop)

I use Mepis, which is now based upon (K)Ubuntu, so this should still work.

Assuming that frostwire is in the default repositories, type the following from a terminal:

Code:
apt-get update

apt-get install frostwire
Typing 'which frostwire' should tell you where frostwire is now installed:

Code:
(you type in)  which frostwire

(the terminal replies)  /usr/bin/frostwire      <---- Just an example

At this point, frostwire is installed. If typing 'which frostwire' did not return an error, you can launch frostwire by simply typing 'frostwire' in a terminal. It may or may not work depending upon which version of Java you have installed. That problem, however, I will have to leave to someone else...or Google.

If the one you downloaded ends in .deb, in a terminal in the same directory as the package, use command:
Code:
sudo dpkg -i packagename.deb
As mentioned above, I believe FrostWire requires java-1.4 and/or above.

install java

Install the package sun-java6-jre. Frostwire depends on this, and it isn't included in ubuntu automatically:
Code:
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre
