    When you open a file browser, it should AUTOMATICALLY open your home directory, like "My Documents" on Windows

    Just as I detailied in my instructions, Linux (self-extracting file) filesize: 18.15 MB


    There's nothing complicated on unzipping, don't read the commands, just copy and paste.

    All the steps are actul commands except the first one

    I didn't ask you to use su anytime, use sudo. And please don't come to a public forum and tell everybody your password!

    Just copy and paste

    i was following the download instructions for java on java.com, i didn't give my password on accident i just want to give everyone as much information as possible so i can start playing music on my computer as soon as possible. i never thought downloading limewire could be so complicated!

    To install the Linux (self-extracting) file
    Follow these instructions:

    1. At the terminal: Type:
    su
    2. Enter the root password.
    3. Change to the directory in which you want to install. Type:
    cd <directory path name>
    For example, to install the software in the /usr/java/ directory, Type:
    cd /usr/java/

    Note about root access: To install the JRE in a system-wide location such as /usr/local, you must login as the root user to gain the necessary permissions. If you do not have root access, install the JRE in your home directory or a subdirectory for which you have write permissions.
    4. Change the permission of the file you downloaded to be executable. Type:
    chmod a+x jre-1_5_0-linux-i586.bin
    5. Verify that you have permission to execute the file. Type:
    ls -l
    6. Start the installation process.Type:
    ./jre-1_5_0-linux-i586.bin

    This displays a binary license agreement. Read through the agreement. Press the spacebar to display the next page. At the end, enter yes to proceed with the installation.

    7. The JRE is installed into its own directory. In this example, it is installed in the /usr/java/jre1.5.0 directory. When the installation has completed, you will see the word Done.


    8. The JRE is installed in jre1.5.(version number) sub-directory under the current directory. In this case, the JRE is installed in the /usr/java/jre1.5.0 directory. Verify that the jre1.5.0 sub-directory is listed under the current directory. Type:
    ls

    Don't follow the instructions at java.com, use the ones I posted
