Unhappy Running Limewire in Suse 8.0


Difficulty running Limewire: I currently downloaded limewire and installed it, I'm not sure of how to activate it, i click on the runlime.sh icon and the open with dialog box come up. I attempt to run it from a shell with the command: ./Limewire, and the following error occurs; no virtual machine could be found from your path environment variable. you must install a VM prior to running this program.

please advise

thanks

it's a java issue, you need to configure your jre.

OR

give up! limewire is horrible, and i'll bet you're only trying to use it as you use it on windows too. http://gtk-gnutella.sf.net
