This must have just changed... If you look at their existing "User Guide' for Linux it says "Linux - Open a shell and cd (change directory) to the directory where you downloaded the installer. At the prompt type: sh ./LimeWireLinux.bin" No talk of an RPM. Maybe it was changed in this version. In the past it was always a .bin

Sorry

What are you installing as? 'root' user? And at whatever directory you are in, what if you type 'java', do you get an error?

Hope this helps you. I just downloaded limewire 4.8.1 think and using firefox and a gnome desktop when i clicked on the linux rpm for limewire it asked me if i wanted to save to disk or open with application manager I think that was it . So i went open with route and it downloads and asks me for my password and proceed to install. I then went to applications/internet and there was limewire launched the program and am downloading music now.

Greetings,

we started offering an rpm installer lately. Version 4.8.1 includes automatic discovery of the java path so that the user will not have to worry about it anymore. The next version (ETA ~2 weeks) will include systray support for linux and mandrake menus.

Something went wrong with LimeWire.
Maybe you're using the wrong version of Java?
(LimeWire is tested against and works best with with Sun's JRE, Java 1.4+)
The version of Java in your PATH is:
java version "1.4.2_06"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_06-b03)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2_06-b03, mixed mode)

Hi,
You need to install xorg-x11-deprecated-libs.
It contains libXp.so.6.

@Icablob :

also please try with the latest java (1.5.0_02) from http://www.java.com

The problem you're describing seems to happen only on 1.4.2, and LimeWire looks much better with the new java anyways

In order to get JRE 1.4.2_0x to work, you need to install the xorg-x11-deprecated-libs package.

Do you have the PATH to java in your .bash_profile

mine looks like this, yours should be similar I think,

Code:
# .bash_profile

# Get the aliases and functions
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
	. ~/.bashrc
fi

# User specific environment and startup programs

JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/jre1.5.0_02
PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin:$JAVA_HOME/bin

export PATH JAVA_HOME
unset USERNAME
The profile is in your /home/<username>/ directory as a hidden file.

The JAVA_HOME line and "JAVA_HOME" in the exprt line aren't nescessary if you put

PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin:/user/java/bin
as the path line instead, but some java programs look for JAVA_HOME, so the first way might save you some future editing. (Or so I've heard.)

For their newest version, they switched to RPMs
