I use it and find it very good. To be honest it for the most part is a beginners tool, if you had added the correct repositories you could do the same in Synaptic. It is however very uselful. I believe it writes its owen sources.list over your own. This wasn't an issue for me as I had a default one but you may want to back yours up first. It certainly is a nice way to get the essentials in.
I'll check it out further. I have a few multiverse/universe repositories in my sources, so I may have to clean that up.
Thank you for being helpful people.
That didn't take long
Well I'll be. It installed as slick as a beavers rug. No problem with code. We'll see what happens when I run Automatix. It was easy to find as well. I did a search in Google 'automatix' and the first link was Ubuntu forums.
Have a problem
After Automatix did it's thing, I notice I can't uninstall anything that was installed. I want to get rid of bittornado and azureus but Automatix, Add/Remove and Synaptic says it's not installed, and therefore won't uninstall them.
Can I do that from the command prompt?
sudo apt-get remove --purge azureus"To express yourself in freedom, you must die to everything of yesterday. From the 'old', you derive security; from the 'new', you gain the flow."
Ok, I'll try that. Good to know these things. Thanks for the help.

First download the Linux (RPM) package from limewire official site.
Then install the required Ubuntu packages :
sudo apt-get install fakeroot alien
fakeroot alien -d LimeWireLinux.rpm
sudo dpkg -i limewire-pro_4.10.0-1_i386.deb
If you want to make it easier on yourself, you can use Frostwire instead of Limewire. There is an Ubuntu package on their site :
