ok, I have now removed the program from /root/Limewire to /home/carlos/Limewire.

I did create the launcher as recommended above and I seem to have it working! Thanks so much for all your help. It has been so long that I have wanted this on my Linux machine!

My only question now is that when I installed the program to /home/carlos, it did not create a folder there called "LimeWire". It just threw all the files there and it looks a mess! Is there a way to clean them all up in to one folder I create called LimeWire?

I know I can browse to /home/carlos and "mkdir Limewire" however how do I move all the files in to that dir? Or am I better just removing this again and then installing it right in to the newly created directory?

I can run LimeWire, but when I am setting it up, it will not allow me to choose my own home directory to save files in.

Perhaps this has something to do with the root account using the same directory to save into (MY home dir)? How can I get rid of all the root account's settings?

I looked at the gtk-gnutela software, and where as it was really easy to install, I can't figure out the fiters, and I'm getting nothing returned but porn. I'd really like to use limewire, but I get this error when trying to install it.

I got same message:

What I dont get is the NO JAVA VIRTUAL MACHINE....blahh...blahh...what is this asking for?
You can see I am not a programmer but I have java installed and working.....I would like to benchmark limewire in linux because I know in windows is pretty fast. If you have cable the download is about 1 min. and for dsl about 3-4 mins.

Can you type java -version on the command-line in a terminal and get anything? If not, then you'll need to add the /path/to/java/bin directory to your PATH. You may also need to export JAVA_HOME-/path/to/java as well.

This is what I got:
Quote:
[imdeemvp@myfc3 ~]$ java -version
libgcj-java-placeholder.sh

This script is a placeholder for the /usr/bin/java
master link required by jpackage.org conventions. libgcj's
rmiregistry, rmic and jar tools are now slave symlinks to these
masters, and are managed by the alternatives(8) system.

This change was necessary because the rmiregistry, rmic and jar tools
installed by previous versions of libgcj conflicted with symlinks
installed by jpackage.org JVM packages.
gij (GNU libgcj) version 3.4.2 20041017 (Red Hat 3.4.2-6.fc3)

Now you know I am not a programmer so how is this done agian? /path/to/java/bin directory to your PATH?

Okay, you need to uninstall GCJ - it's the "JVM" that's on your PATH. I did a How-To on installing Java (like you and three other people!), so those are the ones you need to start with.

The reason GCJ won't work is because LimeWire uses Swing - which GCJ doesn't support.

Are these the ones I have to remove?
Quote:
alternatives --remove java /usr/share/java/libgcj-java-placeholder.sh
alternatives --remove javac /usr/share/java/libgcj-javac-placeholder.sh
alternatives --remove jar /usr/bin/fastjar
alternatives --remove jar.1.gz /usr/share/man/man1/fastjar.1.gz
I dont want to mess my java installation so I would like to make sure since you are the professional java geek.

I have another suggestion.

You can create a file in /etc/profile.d/java.sh with following content:
(Assuming you have j2re 1.4.2_06 rpm package from sun website)

#!/bin/bash
# Init Script for j2re 1.4.2_06
# Drop this script in /etc/profile.d

JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_06
PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH

export JAVA_HOME PATH

Now log out and log back in. Then type "echo $PATH" from a terminal to see the order of executables. This way, you can give a priority to j2re instead of libgcj.

But removing these 2 will also eliminate the problem?

I would simply suggest you to use GTK - Gnutella, it may not have the same layout, but i think it works faster and you don't have the stupid advertising telling to buy.

I can get it installed in fc3... I get:
Quote:
"Cannot open LimeWireLinux.bin"
The filename "LimeWireLinux.bin" indicates that this file is of type "unknown". The contents of the file indicate that the file is of type "shell script". If you open this file, the file might present a security risk to your system.

Do not open the file unless you created the file yourself, or received the file from a trusted source. To open the file, rename the file to the correct extension for "shell script", then open the file normally. Alternatively, use the Open With menu to choose a specific application for the file.
Please help!!
