You need to install the Java SDK and set it in your path.

type "env" in a terminal to check your current PATH

did you try gtk-gnutella?

And about trying gnutella, well... i dont give up that use, u know? Its not that LimeWire is better than Gnutella (in fact, i have NO IDEA!) but it SHOULD BE working, and im going to find out why its not, even if this is the last thing i do in this miserable life!!! :-) Just kidding... i like challenges, thats all...

So, any clue??

i know there are alot of people having trouble with installing limewire, because of java.

it seemed for most people this worked:

/home/user/.bashrc or .bash_profile

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/j2sdk1.3.1
export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH

ofcourse, for me, where nothing on my computer is the same as anybody elses, i changed /usr/lib to /usr/java and that seemed to work at first. until i got these warnings, and at the same time, i got the window for limewire, but almost all of the text and click boxes weren't visible. i had to click blindly to figure out where 'ok' and 'cancel' where:



Warning: Cannot convert string "<Key>Escape,_Key_Cancel" to type VirtualBinding
Warning: Cannot convert string "<Key>Home,_Key_Begin" to type VirtualBinding
Warning: Cannot convert string "<Key>F1,_Key_Help" to type VirtualBinding
Warning: Cannot convert string "Shift<Key>F10,_Key_Menu" to type VirtualBinding
Warning: Cannot convert string "<Key>F10,Shift_Key_Menu" to type VirtualBinding
Warning: Cannot convert string "<Key>KP_Enter,_Key_Execute" to type VirtualBinding
Warning: Cannot convert string "Alt<Key>Return,Alt_Key_KP_Enter" to type VirtualBinding


i hope that the path thing helps you...

yea i just went through this last night, you just gotta set your path correctly and make sure that you know exactly what version of java you have....

This is .bashrc (and i had a copy of this file named .bash_profile, just in case)

# Manually created file to run LimeWire...

#export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/j2re1.4.2_03/bin:.
#export CLASSPATH=/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_03/lib:.

# Modification of depair...

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/j2re1.4.2_03
export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH


And nothing done....

Anyone have a better shot??

Just remember:

michel@michel:~$ echo $PATH
/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/games:/opt/www/htdig/bin:/usr/local/j2re1.4.2_03/bin:/opt/kde/bin:/usr/lib/qt-3.1.2/bin:/usr/share/texmf/bin:.:/usr/local/j2re1.4.2_03/bin:.
michel@michel:~$ echo $CLASSPATH
/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_03/lib:.
michel@michel:~$ dont know what to do
-bash: dont: command not found
michel@michel:~$

So please dont tell me to configure PATH, im tired of reading this... but if theres something wrong with $PATH and/or $CLASSPATH, please let me know...

yes i have tried. once before... a long time ago. and if i rem correctly, it was an even bigger pain in the ass that limewire. but this is what i don't get. before i formatted my laptop, i had it installed without any trouble like this. was it because i was using RH9 instead of 8, like i'm using now? or some other reason?
