Thread: File sharing programs for opensuse

  1. #11

    Default Re: File sharing programs for opensuse

    Sorry to post again about this, but I followed my own instructions above and extracted the tarball into ~/bin, but now I wonder if I should have used /usr/bin? I guess the only difference is that if it is in my home folder under /bin then it would not be available to other users ... is that right? (I am the only user on this machine)

    Anyway, it extracted to ~/bin/Frostwire/frostwire-5.0.8.noarch/ which is not what I wanted but is probably just as well because I can track different versions. I was able to edit the KDE menu and add the entry under Applications --> Internet --> Peer to Peer and it runs. I noticed that some menu items have a suffix after the command. Like the firefox entry is "firefox %u". Not sure what that means but it starts using just "frostwire" with no suffix.

    Problem is there is no icon. There is a folder called "icns" but it says it is for a Mac. There is also a desktop file, but it expects to find the program in /usr/bin so it won't work. I can substitute another icon, but any ideas how/where to download the Frostwire icon?

    I guess I got it done, but its probably backwards from how it should be. Any suggestions?

    Open a terminal in the same directory and do: ./frostwire

    see this
    SUSE Paste
    ... okay, that did something

    user@linux-qq7f:~/bin/Frostwire/frostwire-5.0.8.noarch> ./frostwire
    HOSTNAME IS linux-qq7f
    Starting FrostWire...
    Java exec found in PATH. Verifying...
    Suitable java version found [java = 1.6.0_26]
    Configuring environment...
    Loading FrostWire:
    CLASSPATH SET TO: .:lw-azureus.jar:lw-collection.jar:lw-common.jar:lw-io.jar:lw-resources.jar:lw-setting.jar:commons-logging.jar:FrostWire.jar:gettext-commons.jar:gson-1.4.jar:httpclient-4.0.jar:httpcore-4.0.1.jar:jdic.jar:messages.jar:MRJAdapter.jar:splash.jar:substance.jar:trident.jar
    java.io.IOException: Stream closed
    1: Main.main([Ljava.lang.String;@7ca83b8a)
    But it didn't create a menu entry or icon. It runs the same as before from the menu entry I created. Did that just set environment variables like the location of java? (Looks like it already knew where it was ...)
