Question LimeWire

I know that there are previous threads on LimeWire, and i've read them but still can't get it working. I've done all the steps that were posted as far as i can tell. LimeWire still won't launch. Someone PLEASE help me. I need to have a p2p program running. And i'm a die hard fan of LimeWire from my Win$ days.

How are you launching it? Have you looked in the logs to see what (if any) errors are preventing it from running? Are you running it as root or a user? Do you have Java installed correctly for Fedora, and can the .jar files find it in your path?

If you go into the Limewire directory and yupe 'java' does it find it or give you an error? If you get an error, you will need to make changes to your users path.

If you go into the directory where you installed Limewire (that could be just about anywhere) and just type 'java' from the command line, it will give you an error if you do not have a path to the java binaries. If you get the error, you will need to modify the path in the .bash_profile for the user you are on the system as. Not sure if you are on a root or some other user.

Try gtk-gnutella (http://gtk-gnutella.sourceforge.net/ ). You can get amazing speeds from it (I've got 200 k+) without all this Limewire hassel.

No the question was where was Limewire installed to, not Java. The rpm should handle that part, but the installer (.bin) file for Limewire asks where you want the application installed on the HD.

Limewire should have given you a .bin file (installer file) for this application. I have not seen them provide any .rpm files. Are you sure you got this from the Limewire site? Did you select to download the Linux Installer (.bin) file? If not, I would give this a try.
