Question Software install readme says...

install Python, version 2.0 or later (DONE)

install wxPython (DONE)

untar (DONE)

this is the part I DON'T understand...

put a line in /etc/mailcap which is similar to the
following, only replace the path to
/usr/bin/ with the one it's actually in.

application/x-bittorrent; /usr/bin/ %s; test=test -n "$DISPLAY"

Can anyone help...

put this line: application/x-bittorrent; /usr/bin/ %s; test=test -n "$DISPLAY"
in the file /etc/mailcap. change: /usr/bin/ of the above line to the location where it actually is, such as /home/<username>/ , or /usr/local/, etc.
