most packages/programs are installed in the /usr directory.. or /usr/local, depends on the program. read the readme or install file and it will tell you.. usually a program is run by typing in the program name after installing it..

if you installed it to the default location then try this

cd /usr/local/LimeWire

then this

./runLime.sh

or this

sh ./runLime.sh

depends on what you have.

the later one will work for about everyone

the first one will work for most.

you should not run programs from Nautilus

you have to be in Xwindows to run limewire.

open an xterm in Xwindows and type in there.

something tells me you still need to install limewire.
