Azureus Install Help

I need help installing Azureus I dont understand the instructions please help. very new to linux need lots of help

1) Install JRE from here.

2) Extract latest linux package (choice of GTK or Motif) from here

To extract the program files from the package, type
tar xvjf Azureus_x.x.x.x_linux...tar.bz2 where Azureus_x.x.x.x_linux...tar.bz2 is the name of the downloaded package.

3) Change to the azureus directory and run ./azureus to start

cd azureus

If you get an error message, or want to configure the java exec path, just open the azureus script file with your favorite text editor and edit the given configuration options.

If Azureus does not show up after a minute, you can try starting it manually:
java -cp swt.jar:swt-pi.jar:Azureus2.jar -Djava.library.path=./ org.gudy.azureus2.ui.swt.Main
java -cp swt.jar:Azureus2.jar -Djava.library.path=./ org.gudy.azureus2.ui.swt.Main

4) Please give feedback, if any exceptions were thrown.

Under J2SE v 1.4.2_06 JRE, click on Download J2SE JRE to download the java runtime environment, which will enable you to run azureus and any other java program.
