kasperhans 10-16-2003 03:41 PM go there its a graphical bittorrent client like bt++ and it has a good documentation .... have fun if you have further questions not in the azureus documentation, ask :)

yes i have that, but i dont know howto install it, i have installed java like it said but now im stuck on the 2nd bit.

kasperhans 10-16-2003 03:58 PM

with what do you have special problems ?
so you installed java? ok where post the dir and which version of java you installed, then you maybe just want to download a all inclusive file of azureus so you dont have to install anything else exept java those files are avaible here if you are using gnome chose the gtk version

after you downloaded your file follow this ... all on the documentation page ...

Running from jar
If you just want to run Azureus, and don't want to fiddle with the source code, running from a jar file is the easiest solution.

You have two choices when you run from jar file, either you get a package containg all the things you need to run Azureus, or you get the software required yourself, and the jar file from the Azureus web site.

My packages
The simplest way to get Azureus to run is using a compiled package from Just extract the file and run the script azureus.

# tar -jxf azureus-

# cd azureus

# ./azureus

If you extracted Azureus somewhere else than your home directory, you need to edit the script azureus, and change INSTALL_DIR to the directory you installed it to.

any question left??? ask
