Installing Limewire
Hi, I just installed the Ubuntu V. of linux and I am having a hard time learning how to install things I was wondering if someone could atleast help me install limewire?

first of all download limewire from and if you have an rpm based distro you can just get the rpm and do rpm -ivh limewire.rpm or whatever its called otherwise you need to download the limewire for other platforms and unpack it then cd into the directory and do java -jar LimeWire.jar if you dont have java installed thats a whole other thing.

I tried entering it in Root and it To install rpm packages on Debian systems, use alien. See README.Debian.
error: cannot open Packages index using db3 - No such file or directory (2)
error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm

So what does that mean i have to do?

There is also a non rpm version available from the LimeWire website, that just needs to be unzipped and its ready to run.

I'm currently using Simply Mepis 3.3 and all I did was:


apt-get install limewire
That should take care of it. If not let me know. I'm pretty sure that's what I did, I went through my HDD and I didn't see where I may of compiled it.
