same answer...
-----------------------------------
Preparing to install...
Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
Configuring the installer for this system's environment...
No Java virtual machine could be found from your PATH
environment variable. You must install a VM prior to
running this program.
-------------------------------
btw... when i write in the console "java" or, when i write "man java" it says that there is no such command... i tryed to remove it and install again... didn't help ((((

That doesn't really help me....I did that....and I did it again after I read your post just to be sure. It's almost like there is a bug in the actual LimeWire bin/script file. It is throwing a java exception right? Which tells me that Java is installed correctly and can be "seen" ok (i.e. $PATH is set). But LimeWire crashes. Any other ideas?

hmmm.....I just realized that when I type "java" it's actually running a bash script found in /usr/bin/java that calls "gij" behind the scenes. This appears to be some sort of "non-sun" wrapper. Could this be the problem?

download and install the full developer kit from IBM this will allow you to use some other cool software like JPhotoBrush( a little buggy but easy to use). And you never know maybe you will want to develope your own J2EE client server app someday.

SAWEET...ok I've got it working, here's what I did. I renamed all of the "java" stuff (java, javac and javah) to "gnu_java" so that the java executed would be the one found in the j2re directory and not /usr/share/java.

Then I redownloaded the LimeWire.bin file (this was probably the biggest problem as it appears my download was corrupt). I'm installing it now as I write this.

I just installed OpenOffice, it saw my java environment(j2sdk141.5)

Why won't LimeWire see it? It's located in /usr/local/

You should try going in your .bash_profile file and adding the path to the java executable to the $PATH variable. That way you can run limewire w/out specifying the path to java.
