also when i attempt to burn cds it starts but it says"normalizing tracks" and its been doing it for hours now is there another software program i can install or is there another package that needs to be installed.i am using brasero disc burner

Instead of limewire i suggest you frostwire... https://launchpad.net/frostwireproject

To install Frostwire you must first install Java
A) to install Java

- Please first enable the multiverse repository:

Open System → Administration → Software sources → [ Tab Ubuntu software ]
enable "Software restrictecd by copyright or legal issue ( multiverse )"
Close and confirm the repository reload.

- Then open a Terminal from the menu Applications → Accessories → Terminal and type:

sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude upgrade
sudo aptitude install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-bin
plase confirm pressing "tab" key and pressing enter the java licence agreement

give your user password when requested, you don't see nothing when you type it, then press enter.

B) to install frostwire go to http://www.frostwire.com/?id=downloads
and select install with gdebi then push to "install" gdebi button

if you don't get dependencies error you will find Frostwire under Applications → Internet → Frostwire

Hope this helps

You can use alacarte to add a new menu item to run the app yourself.
