    Question music

    I'm new to ubuntu. I'm looking for a program that I can use to download music. I used to use ares with my old computer. I installed frostwire, but for some reason it acts like i did not install it. It won't open or run. What should i use for music, or how can i fix programs that i install to open?

    Re: music

    To fix Frostwire you should install java. Open up a terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal) and type:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin
    then select installed jre from alternatives:

    Code:
    sudo update-alternatives --config-java
    select the one with jre, now start Frostwire. Other than Frostwire there are other protocols like

    aMule for ed2k:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install amule
    Deluge Torrent for bittorrent:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install deluge-torrent
    and linuxdcpp for dc++:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linuxdcpp

    Re: music

    yeh frostwire will work once you get regular java installed.
    that error you got is common, but its an easy fix.

    Re: music

    well if you install the regular java it should work, if you need a base guide to install new software in ubuntu use this guide:
