ok when i try to install it as root that^^^is what i get but if i leave root then type ./LimeWireLinux.bin it starts to install. Only problem is it wants to install to the home dir and i dont like that
Root and user must have different paths then. Have you set the CLASSPATH for root?
what is classpath and sorry if this is the wrong forum
Did you fully install J2SE?
I would install it under /opt...
So type /opt/LimeWire for your installation path.
>Start it with /opt/LimeWire/LimeWire
seems you missing j2se.download it from sun site and after installing it you should add the executables of java to your path variable like
I heard about this problem on Free Limewire Guide but i download Limewire Pro for free and enjoy
It doesn't seem like its a java related problem. You are being denied access to the display because as root you are not the user who started the X session. Switch to root using "su" instead of "su -" and LimeWire should install fine to paths where only root can write. This is because if you use "su" to switch to another user, you keep the previous users environment which is not the case if you use "su -".
