Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

give us the output of the following commands run as a user (not root)
if you have slocate set up, or
if you don't
Java must be in your PATH for runlime.sh to work. It should be, but the second command will tell for sure. If it gives you a version information, it's in your PATH. If it doesn't, thats a whole new problem for a new post.
Once you get the actual location of runlime.sh, you can symlink it like so:
Check if you've installed a package called j2sdk, this is Java 2 Software Development Kit and includes the JRE Java Runtime Enviroment which is what you need to run Java programs. If you do, then you've Java installed, maybe it's not on the PATH. If you do, then add to your ~/.profile file a line like: PATH=$PATH:/usr/lib/jdk1.5.0_01/bin/
It's really not kidding. It can't find 'runLime.sh' because it's not there... Re-download the rpm file from their web site and convert it again... Something screwy must have happened somewhere... I downloaded the rpm file and converted it and it has all that stuff in there for me...
And I think Pat quit using Java SDK.. You should have j2re installed, not j2sdk, depending on which version of Slack your running. Either one will work tho.
