I really like LimeWire and it would be nice addition to VL repo as quality p2p (Gnutella) client.

Official binaries:

http://www10.limewire.com/download/LimeWireOther.zip

FrostWire includes all funcionality of free LimeWire version + a few features of LimeWire Pro and some additional features like chatroom. We don't need them both, of course! Smiley

Official binaries:

Frostwire is java, and I'm not sure what the standard is to package it.
I suppose it could go into a self-contained directory in /opt.

In any case, if you download it, you can start it with:
Code:
java -jar FrostWire.jar

for that matter, i simply download the source tarball from the website, unpack it somewhere (maybe even /usr/bin?) and just create shortcuts to 'runFrostWire.sh' and that works out just fine for me. i can even set my own custom icon (like the limewire one from inspirate icon set) just thought id throw that out there.

Yea, I missed that one. The program should definitely be run with that, and with a symlink from /usr/bin to that script.
Thanks!

Just for consistency, because /usr/bin only contains the executables, I thought it should go in /opt.
But, of course, it will work anyway.

I was just wondering if one should make a package out of it, placing the whole directory in /opt, making the symlink in /usr/bin, and putting the icon and the .desktop file in their right places.
