Please help :(


I am so completely frustrated with Linux. I've only had it a few days now, and I love it.. but It's frustrating learning an OS all over again. If anyone can help me follow these simple linux install instructions... please reply. Ill do anything!

1) Install JRE from here

You don't need the SDK unless you're a programmer.
2) Extract latest linux package (choice of GTK or Motif) from here

To extract the program files from the package, type

tar xvjf Azureus_x.x.x.x_linux...tar.bz2
where Azureus_x.x.x.x_linux...tar.bz2 is the name of the downloaded package.

3) Change to the azureus directory and run ./azureus to start

cd azureus

./azureus

If you get an error message, or want to configure the java exec path, just open the azureus script file with your favorite text editor and edit the given configuration options.
If Azureus does not show up after a minute, you can try starting it manually:

GTK:

java -cp swt.jar:swt-pi.jar:systray4j.jar:Azureus2.jar -Djava.library.path=./ org.gudy.azureus2.ui.swt.Main


Motif:

java -cp swt.jar:systray4j.jar:Azureus2.jar -Djava.library.path=./ org.gudy.azureus2.ui.swt.Main


4) Please give feedback, if any exceptions were thrown.




I've spent like 2 days trying to figure this out, and i know it's completely simple probably... and i'd spend more time on it, but i didnt think it'd take this long, and i need to download my school books.

Add me to msn if you'd like..

charmed0rz@hotmail.com

are we allowed to post emails on this board?? :S

ok is it possible for you to elaborate on this ?
cause you basically posted a step by step process, so what i would like to ask you, did you even try to do any of it yet ?
if not, what are you stuck on?
if so, what errors are you getting, or what isn't it doing that you are expecting it to do ?

i assume since you say you spent 2 days trying to figure it out, that you would have at least typed something

Sorry about that. lol.. yeah I have tried it myself, i just don't really understand anything whatsoever on linux. Basically I am stuck on the extracting part. I assumed archive is extract so i just went on pretending i knew what i was doing (guessing basically) and.. so i am stuck on
To extract the program files from the package, type

tar xvjf Azureus_x.x.x.x_linux...tar.bz2
where Azureus_x.x.x.x_linux...tar.bz2 is the name of the downloaded package.


...assuming extract = archive.

BUT i also couldn't get step 1 to work at all, so i also need help on that one. :S

I just don't know the first step to installing on this new oS. :S

No, you have to follow the directions as given on the Azureus site:


1) Have you downloaded Azureus? Where is it? ie /home/ your name/Azureus..

2) Open a terminal window

3) Type "tar xvjf /home/your name/Azureus.XX.bz2" substitute the actual name and path to Azureus.

4) hit Enter

5) the archive (bz2 is an archive format, like zip in Windows) will decompress and now there will be a new directory named Azureus -something.

6) change to that directory type "cd Azureus -something" then hit Enter

7) type ./azureus the hit Enter and it should run.


As for the JRE, it should already be installed. Type "which java" in a terminal window. This should tell you which java is being seen and the path. If nothing comes up, then try "locate j2re" (as root) and this should tell you where java is.

Good Luck
Alan

FYI - in the future, please use a more descriptive title than just "Please Help". Super vague/generic titles like that are useless. If you provide a title that adequately describes the problem you're encountering, I can guarantee that a lot more people will take the time to look at it. A title of "Please Help" is sort of like taking your car to a mechanic and saying "I think something's wrong with my car", which isn't helpful at all. On the other hand, if you said, "The passenger-side headlight is burned out" or "The car seems to pull to the left when I'm braking", the mechanic will be able to give you much better advice, and faster. -- J.W.

Have you done the rest of the suggestions?

"If you get an error message, or want to configure the java exec path, just open the azureus script file with your favorite text editor and edit the given configuration options.

If Azureus does not show up after a minute, you can try starting it manually:
GTK:
java -cp swt.jar:swt-pi.jar:systray4j.jar:Azureus2.jar -Djava.library.path=./ org.gudy.azureus2.ui.swt.Main
Motif:
java -cp swt.jar:systray4j.jar:Azureus2.jar -Djava.library.path=./ org.gudy.azureus2.ui.swt.Main"
