ok, a few things first.
ive learned one thing while using vuze.
NEVER click the update button when it says theirs an update. Ive fried my vuze installation at least 10 times by doing this absentmindedly.

Now lets get vuze installed....

first, download it from the site (http://vuze.com) to your desktop
open up a terminal and type this in
if you don't know how to open up a terminal, perhaps another user could help you



sudo apt-get remove vuze
cd Desktop
bzip2 -d vuze*.bz
tar xvf vuze*.tar
mv vuze ../
cd bin
ln vuze ~/vuze/vuze
to start vuze, just type this in the terminal


vuze

have a great time on your new ubuntu system :)

oh yes, and one more thing. to do torrents, youll have to open up ports, just like in windows.

type this in the terminal



sudo apt-get install firestarter
sudo firestarter
There, you can choose which ports to open (all ports incoming are closed by default.

Theirs also another firewall you can use


sudo apt-get install gufw
sudo gufw

Gufw is a little harder than firestarter, but firestarter hasn't received an update in a long time.


P.S. you might want to use other bittorent clients as Vuze is a little slow on linux.

ill give a list here....

Transmission (installed by default, find it in the menu)(this is the fastest ive found so far)
ktorrent (sudo apt-get install ktorrent)
bittornado (sudo apt-get install bittornado)

P.P.S the program you used (in the first post) is called "Synapatic" not "symantic"
although there is symantec antivirus for linux

Sorry struggling with it still
after the sudo line I get

E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?

Can you get men out of this and beyond?
thanks

By default, you don't ahve to open any ports as none are closed. By installing firestarter you actually do close the ports!

that error appears when there's already a package manager working (if Synaptic is open, for example, or if you're installing/uninstalling/updating anything). Just close the package manager (you'll want to wait until it's done, if it's still doing something) and try again.

alright so ive remmmoved vuze completly, with synaptic, and add/remove programs, now i would really like to install vuze because its an all in one search download client. Then i downloaded the up to date 4.1 vuze for linux right off the website to my desktop, and extracted it, also tried without extracting, neither worked. i tried your aboze directions, and this is what happens.

Sorry for being an idiot i really need to figure this out, thanx guys.

The process failed on the lines I bolded out. Instead of "cd Desktop", type
cd ~/Desktop

The line in red is also wrong. The correct command is not "cd bin", it is
cd /bin
It should work if you try again with these changes.

Sorry it took so long to reply, and good luck. Remember to doublecheck each line for typing errors before hitting "Enter"!

If that's the case, then just capitalize the V in "vuze*.bz" and "vuze*.tar".

you can always just
sudo apt-get install vuzeor download and double-click the Vuze .deb package from http://www.getdeb.net/

This won't get you the absolute latest version, though. GetDeb has the latest stable version, and the repositories tend to get outdated.
