    Limewire problems


    Hi there, i am trying to install limewire, but i get this error:

    Preparing to install...
    Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
    Configuring the installer for this system's environment...
    No Java virtual machine could be found from your PATH
    environment variable. You must install a VM prior to
    running this program.

    I have installed java already, but maybe the OS or the limewire installer doesn't know it's there. Mozilla does cause i had to link it. Now i can see applets with the Mozilla browser.

    I suppose some link or connection is missing. Anybody?

    you need to add the path to the java binary to $PATH in /etc/profile or ~/.bashrc
