  • YAH!!! I have 4 Ultrapeers!!! Nice work!!!
  • Chat window is always on top, hiding the menus.
  • For some reason the option to see the chat was still enabled on linux, we had decided to hide it for a while since it crashes the application in 2 of my linux machine and we're trying to fix the bug.

    fw, The bug you mention, are you running on what Linux distro, can you do a
    uname -a
    and a java -version for me?

    A new .deb has just been published and it hides the chat from linux users, until we figure out a way to fix the crash problem, and the lightweight and heavyweight problems.
  • I am running Debian (etch, mostly). My kernel is 2.6.18 something (customized) and Java 1.5.0_7 (packaged by Markus Kolb). I don't have my laptop with me right now to give you exact output for the commands. I will try to post back later this afternoon or evening. I haven't had any problem with the program crashing.
  • uname -a

    Linux HOSTNAME 2.6.18 #1 Wed Sep 20 22:48:31 EDT 2006 i686 GNU/Linux

    java -version

    java version "1.5.0_07"
    Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_07-b03)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_07-b03, mixed mode, sharing)
  • I'm still using breezy I don't suppose theres a way that I can install it?
  • I am about to install Xubuntu 6.06 later. Then I am going to install this if I get my internet working.
  • I'm still using breezy I don't suppose theres a way that I can install it?

    Have you tried? What does it say?
  • Any chance of a tarball comming out for fedora?
  • For those who want a RPM, you can generate a .rpm from a .deb with alien. Just install alien from the anaconda or distro package installer. Then go in terminal, go to the .deb directory and type "sudo alien -r frostwire-4.13.1.i586.deb"

    For me the one liner command is: "cd Desktop ; sudo alien -r frostwire-4.13.1.i586.deb"

    Just tell us if the binary identified as frostwire-4.13.1-2.noarch.rpm works for you.

    Ciao
  • All running fine on my Ubuntu Edgy box - had to install java as follows:

    Visit java index here:
    http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp
    choose Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update 9 accept license agreement and download the Linux self-extracting file: jre-1_5_0_09-linux-i586.bin to Desktop

    then enter in Gnome terminal
    cd Desktop
    sudo apt-get install java-package
    
    Then
    fakeroot make-jpkg jre-1_5_0_09-linux-i586.bin
    
    Then
    sudo dpkg -i sun-j2re1.5_1.5.0+update09_i386.deb
    

    With all other programs closed, then used Gubatron's method for installing Frostwire from the blog :)

    Looks great thanks all :)
  • Options->Chat seems to throw errors a good amount of the time. Also, has IP filtering been taken out? I don't see it anywhere.
  • wow thanks for the update guys!
  • So, uhh, we're actually at version 4.18.6

  • Man, this is such an old post. I am using Ubuntu 12.04 now. I am completely off the mark. I am confused as to which version I should go for. I have this latest version Ubuntu 13.04 and I have got this Ubuntu 12.04. The later provides extended support but the former provides more features. Which one should I go for mate?

    The gnutella net, on which FW 4 is based, for all effective purposes, is dead or compromised. I wouldn't waste my time on it. You should be able to find a current FW 5.x.x that is compatible with Ubuntu. Go for that. You may need to be aware of the java version your are using - not sure if Ubuntu FW comes with a bundled java or not.
