Search synaptic or the add/remove applications package for a package named Frostwire, it connects to the same network.

Hello,

First of all, you must have "multiverse" repository enabled. (ystem ==> Administration ==> Software Sources).

Is this the file you downloaded ?
http://www9.limewire.com/download/LimeWireLinux.deb

If it's not this, the download it.

To install:
Open the terminal and go to the directory where the file is. Example :
cd ~/Desktop

Then install it with this command :
sudo dpkg -i LimeWireLinux.deb

Download the .deb package and use something such as "gdebi" to install it.

Can you help with this problem?
