You need to add the path to the java bin to your path. I have java in /usr/java . For me the path to java bi is /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_02/bin , it may be different on your machine so alter the details to fit. But to get LimeWire to work I would open a terminal and enter
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_02/bin
and then whatever you need to get LimeWire working. If you have to close the terminal it will forget so you'll need to type it in again. I hope you get it working, and I also hope you move on and get Gtk-Gnutella, but that's my preference.

Limewire is hip, gtk-gnutella gives you more
options.

As for Limewire: it should work, you do have
the path set properly. The only difference that
I can see is that I also have
JAVA_HOME=/usr/java
set ... try
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_02

Cheers,
Tink

No, you need to add it to your path, and you need to point it to the /bin folder. The error message is telling you what it needs "No Java virtual machine could be found from your PATH".
If you have java in /usr/java then enter

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_02/bin

But if it's wrong by just one character (eg if you have j2re1.4.2_01 or you say in your first post it's the sdk version, has it got the right name?) it won't work.
