problem with limewire


I downloaded the LimeWire.rpm file, then i did the following:

------------------------------------------------
bash-3.00# rpm2tgz LimeWireLinux.rpm
bash-3.00# installpkg LimeWireLinux.tgz
Installing package LimeWireLinux...
PACKAGE DESCRIPTION:

bash-3.00# limewire
sh: runLime.sh: No such file or directory
------------------------------------------------


What did I do wrong?

looks like a PATH error
try
source /etc/profile
then runlime.sh

but - you should never run an internet application as root!

Can you download the source and compile it from source? Might be better.

I dunno though

I installed Limewire the same way through rpm2tgz, and it'll work by simply typing "limewire" (minus quotes) in the "run" command box or in the terminal.

Takes a little while to load up on my oldish box, but works very well.

Did it install to your home directory cd Limewire ./runLime.sh

This might explain:

-------------------------------------
bash-3.00# whereis LimeWire
LimeWire: /usr/lib/LimeWire
bash-3.00# cd /usr/lib/LimeWire
bash-3.00# ls
COPYING LimeWire.jar
-------------------------------------

shouldn't runLime.sh be in that folder?

any ideas at all??

give us the output of the following commands run as a user (not root)

Code:
slocate runlime.sh
if you have slocate set up, or
Code:
which runlime.sh
if you don't

and
Code:
java -version
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:
Code:
ln -sf /path/to/runlime.sh /usr/local/bin/runlime.sh


or just grab gtk-gnutella http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/g...r.bz2?download
and
Code:
./Configure
press enter for all questions, the defaults are fine
Code:
make
Code:
su -c make install
gtk-gnutella connects to the same gnutella network as LimeWire, is open source, isn't a crummy Java app, is free, and is very easy to use.

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/

I guess this proves I do have it...

------------------------------------------------------------
bash-3.00# whereis java
java: /usr/lib/java /usr/include/java /usr/share/java
------------------------------------------------------------

I'm stumped :|

It sounds like your LimeWire directory is screwed up. If you only have 2 files in there, it must be.

Code:
[root@jaguar /usr/lib/LimeWire] ls
clink.jar               libIdleTime.so             README.txt
commons-httpclient.jar  libtray.so                 root
commons-logging.jar     limewire-16.png            runLime.sh
COPYING                 limewire-32.png            SOURCE
daap.jar                limewire-48.png            spacer.gif
data.ser                Limewire.desktop           themes.jar
hashes                  LimeWire.jar               tritonus.jar
i18n.jar                Limewire.mandrake          update.ver
icu4j.jar               logicrypto.jar             vorbis.jar
id3v2.jar               looks.jar                  xerces.jar
jcraft.jar              MessagesBundle.properties  xml-apis.jar
jdic.jar                MessagesBundles.jar        xml.war
jl011.jar               mp3sp14.jar
jmdns.jar               ProgressTabs.jar
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.

Code:
~$ echo $PATH
/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/games:/opt/www/htdig/bin:/usr/lib/java/bin:/usr/lib/java/jre/bin:/opt/kde/bin:/usr/lib/qt/bin:/usr/share/texmf/bin:.
try echo $PATH on your box and compare. /usr/lib/java/bin and /usr/lib/java/jre/bin are the important bits for this problem.

Then reference jong357's post about incomplete install of LimeWire.

i had the same problems with limewire, just go to

http://www.linuxpackages.net

and search for the limewire package, download it and install it with the installpkg command in the CLI.
it should get it up and running.
