    Which distribution of Linux do you use? Linux is a bit more tight on security than Windows so I assume it's a port situation.

    i want to be as clear as possible, i click download at the limewire website it downloads and then I'm sent to karchiver, i don't know what to do after that, i would be extremely grateful if anyone out there could explain to me how to install limewire in a simple step by step procedure, without using the word "port" i don't know what it means. not only would i be forever indebted to anyone that can help but i think having an easy to follow guide to installing limewire or any other p2p would be very valuable information on the Internet, and would be appreciated by many Linux newcomers like myself.

    Freespire is Debian based. download Limewire for Debian.
    i assume that you have saved it on Desktop. Open Terminal/Konsole and execute this
    Code:
    cd Desktop
    sudo dpkg -i LimeWireLinux.deb
    if it throws any error, post exact error message here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    jkutinsky@computer:~$ sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Package sun-java6-jre is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package sun-java6-jre has no installation candidate

    Have you tried first CNR to install Limewire? I searched and it's just there LimeWire Details
