    HOWTO: Install Azureus 3.0 - Vuze

    Works for Ubuntu Breezy, Dapper, Edgy and Feisty

    I'm doing this howto on the requests from users: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=135968
    Though there's diffrent Howto install azureus on the howto forum, but not the way I install it.

    Before you start you might uninstall your previous version of Azureus.

    --------------------------------------------------


    1. Make sure you have sun Java 1.5 or 1.6 installed and working. To see if what your Java version is set by default type: java -version in the terminal.

    2. Download Azureus 3.0 (Vuze) linux version: Here. Save it to your Desktop.

    3. Open up for the terminal:
    Code:
    cd Desktop
    sudo tar jxvf Azureus_3_0_linux.tar.bz2 -C /opt/
    sudo chown -R <username>:<username> /opt/azureus/
    4. Now we need a launcher from the Application tab, fire up the terminal again:
    Code:
    sudo nano /usr/share/applications/Azureus.desktop
    add:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Name=Azureus
    Comment=P2P Client
    Exec=/opt/azureus/azureus
    Icon=/opt/azureus/Azureus.png
    Terminal=false
    Type=Application
    Categories=Application;Network;
    5. This is optional. If you want azureus to launch from a command in the terminal:

    Code:
    sudo nano /usr/bin/azureus
    add:

    #!/bin/sh

    /opt/azureus/azureus "$*"
    save it and close it.
    Now the last thing in the terminal:
    Code:
    sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/azureus
    azureus
    Now get the any updates and plugins you need. After that exit Azureus (so there aren't any azureus tray icon). Then;

    Code:
    sudo chown -R root:root /opt/azureus/

    The .bz2 archive is the where it just says linux: <link>. Just click on it and it takes you there.

    Updated:
    - New version is out 2.4.0.0 ---> 2.4.0.2

    If you already have installed 2.4.0.0 you don't need to reinstall. Azureus auto update to the latest.

    Re: HOWTO: Install Azureus (newest, non-repo way)

    Excellent! Thanks.

    I have 1 question:

    When I try and download a torrent file from Firefox, it asks me if I want to save it to disk or open directly using the default bittorrent client. When I choose to open it using azureus (via /usr/bin/azureus), it doesn't seem to open the torrent at all...it does open azureus, but not the torrent. How can I fix this?

    I can get torrents to download by saving the file to disk and then opening that file in azureus by File->open->torrent file.

    Also, any reason why you did not choose to link to the azureus file?
    ln -s /opt/azureus/azureus /usr/bin/azureus

    And, if you want to install plugins without running azureus as root, you'd have to make /opt/azureus writable to all (although this could be a security risk).

    I'll will look into this. But if you use 'save as' it should open the torrent automatically with azureus if you use the downloader which comes with epiphany, I'm sure you can set firefox to do too.


    Also, any reason why you did not choose to link to the azureus file?
    ln -s /opt/azureus/azureus /usr/bin/azureus
    Doesn't worked. Have tried before I decided writing this howto. That's why I use a script instead.

    And, if you want to install plugins without running azureus as root, you'd have to make /opt/azureus writable to all (although this could be a security risk).
    ???

    All plugins and updates works if you install azureus as I described. I just double checked to be sure in my case.
    You can sudo chown -R <username>:<username> /opt/azureus/ or to "all" if you want to change it (on your own risk).

    I hope you can use my answers, or just ask again

    I may have a solution to this problem. When I followed your guide the first time Firefox would not successfully pass the torrent. So I looked at my ".mailcap" file. I originally had Azureus listed in mailcap as "application/x-bittorrent; /usr/bin/azureus" so I tried this "application/x-bittorrent; /opt/azureus/azureus".

    Look in your .mailcap file in /home/username/.mailcap. This file is hidden by default.

    Change
    Code:
    application/x-bittorrent; /usr/bin/azureus
    to
    Code:
    application/x-bittorrent; /opt/azureus/azureus
    I use Dapper and the Firefox nightly's so maybe that makes a difference. I hope this helps you, good luck.
