    Unhappy Frostwire installed but wrong Java path


    Hi everyone,

    I have installed Frostwire and the required Java 1.6
    However, Frostwire refuses to run. This is what came up after I typed "frostiwre" in the terminal:

    sh: unpack200: command not found
    sh: unpack200: command not found
    sh: unpack200: command not found
    Traceback (most recent call last):

    output = file('hashes','w')

    Something went wrong with FrostWire.
    Maybe you're using the wrong version of Java?
    (FrostWire 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"
    gij (GNU libgcj) version 4.1.2 20070115 (prerelease) (SUSE Linux)

    I could be wrong, but does this mean Frostwire cannot locate the Java 1.6?

    Both the Frostwire and Java 1.6 are installed in /Desktop/Utilities
    How do I make a path for Frostwire so that it can locate the Java 1.6?

    I use Suse 10.0

    Please help me solve this problem. Thank you so much!
