Frostwire doesn't launch in ubuntu 7.04
 
I just upgraded to ubuntu 7.04 and it imported everything fine, but frostwire would not launch. I uninstalled it then went to frostwire website and reinstalled,,, still won't launch? I also installed java6 using synaptic and after all that i get this:

Starting FrostWire...
Java exec found in PATH. Verifying...
OOPS, you don't seem to have a valid JRE. FrostWire works best with Sun JRE available at http://www.java.com
OOPS, unable to locate java exec in /usr/lib/ hierarchy
You need to upgrade to JRE 1.5.x or newer from http://www.java.com
ls: /usr/java/j*: No such file or directory
OOPS, unable to locate java exec in /usr/java/ hierarchy
You need to upgrade to JRE 1.5.x or newer from http://www.java.com
ls: /opt/j*: No such file or directory

I had the same problem with Limewire. Here is how I fixed it. Of course for this to work, you will have to edit the script to match your installation. You also need a working installed java installation. From what you have said, java is installed on your system. Here is the script I created.

Code:

#!/bin/sh

# tell it where your jre is
PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin:/usr/java/jre1.5.0_06/bin
export PATH

#set this var (like runlime.sh)
J2SE_PREEMPTCLOSE=1
export J2SE_PREEPMTCLOSE

# move to where runlime.sh can be found
cd /usr/limewire/LimeWire
sh ./runLime.sh

You will have to modify the PATH to your java installation. The last part is changing directory to where you installed Frostwire ( in my case Limewire ). Then it runs the start up script supplied with limewire.

I know this is not the same program, but the solution should work, if you edit it correctly.

Hope this helps.
