Limewire

I have installed JRE with the instructions on Java.com. I still get the error saying Java Virtual Machine wasn't found, when trying to install Limewire.

I'm really new with Linux, I was told that using it might help me, so I'm going to try and make it work for me.

So any help would be absolutely great.

Keeps it simple please

Ok I have installed limewire (re-downloaded) and now when I go to launch it, it just won't open. Am I doing, or have I done something wrong?

Hi,
You need to set a Path variable in order to run Limewire.
You need to add the following lines to beginning of the file .bashrc within your user account directory:
JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jre
PATH=$PATH:$JAVA_HOME/bin
export JAVA_HOME
export PATH
Then you need to log out of the user account and log back in.
To see if the path is set correctly, open a shell and type in the following:
java -version
You sould get a printout of the version of java you are using.
(Note: in order to set this system wide for other user accounts you can add those lines to the file /etc/profile)

Any file with a dot in front of it is a hidden files. To view hidden files type the following in a command shell:
dir -a
This will list all of the files in the current directory.

I typed that in terminal and found the file, I just don't know how to open it for editing. I have selected view hidden files in my filesystem, and can't find it.

I really have no idea

Within the command shell type in:
gedit .bashrc
This will open up the file in a graphical text editor.

******************************************************************
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)

[nashy@localhost ~]$ java -version
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)
[nashy@localhost ~]$
I changed the file like said, saved, logged out, came back in, tried to run Limewire, and then checked java -version

*cries*

Your Java is working a it should.
What you need to do is install the rpm file xorg-x11-deprecated-libs.
At the command prompt type in:
rpm -q xorg-x11-libs
If the answer is:
xorg-x11-libs-6.8.1-12.FC3.21
You will have to install the upgraded version by typing in the following:
su -c "yum install xorg-x11-deprecated-libs"
You will have to enter the root password. This will download the file and install it.

If The version number is different from xorg-x11-libs-6.8.1-12.FC3.21 then you will need to install the file from the cds.

Any idea why that is the case? The only dependency specified in the rpm is the j2re. Does java 1.5 need those deprecated libs?

Hi,
Sorry, I thought this thread was done.
I suspect that it is an undetected dependancy problem for the java rpm. I noticed that the Dag rpm is built from the Sun's Java installation bin file. From the few rpms I have built, the rpm program usually picks up dependancies well.
I can confirm that this is not a problem with Sun's java 1.5 versions.
