    what version of Ubuntu did you install? The basic process is to install java and then download the Limewire Debian/Ubuntu package from the limewire site and install it. If you let us know which version of Ubuntu you are running, we can provide more accurate details.

    When you first reboot, ubuntu might be doing a check for updates, which is why it's complaining that you already have a package manager open. Give it a few minutes (or an hour!) and try again.

    EDIT: It's always best to install things with the package management system. It will make things easier in the future.

    Also, not to be a dick, but a bit of punctuation would have made your post a lot easier to read. When some people see a post with no punctuation at all, they might just ignore it since they can't be bothered trying to read it.
