It's been years since I've used any form of linux, but FrostWire not starting could be a java problem. Win versions install a local version of Java, but I don't know if ubuntu does or not. Do check java versions that you have.

You might find more help on an ubuntu forum.

do you have compiz running? (Java and compiz don't seem to get along very well)

make sure you have OpenJDK 7 installed (Java 7)

Hi there, we just released FrostWire 6.0.0 for Linux last night.

You can download it and see if it solves your issues at the official download page
http://www.frostwire.com/downloads

It should be way faster and consume a lot less resources.

Note: The current installer is 64-bit compatible only
