Okay first things first you are going to need to download the newest version of Azureus and install the java runtime environment.
For Azureus/Vuze 32bit:
In the terminal:
wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/azureus/Vuze_126.96.36.199_linux.tar.bz2?download && tar xvjf Vuze_188.8.131.52_linux.tar.bz2 && sudo aptitude install sun-java6-bin
For Azureus/Vuze 64bit:
In the terminal:
wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/azureus/Vuze_184.108.40.206_linux-x86_64.tar.bz2?download && tar xvjf Vuze_220.127.116.11_linux-x86_64.tar.bz2&& sudo aptitude install sun-java6-bin
Next we are going to have to edit the azureus script in order to point it to the location we are going to move the core files to.
Now find this line in the file:
#PROGRAM_DIR="/home/username/apps/azureus" # use full path to Azureus bin dir
and replace it with this:
Remember to remove the # or else it won't work. Now it is time to move everything where it needs to be. While still in the vuze directory in the terminal type:
sudo mv "azureus" "/usr/bin/azureus"
sudo mv "vuze" "/usr/bin/vuze"
sudo mv "vuze" "/usr/share/vuze/"
That's it your done! Happy torrenting
Make it so Vuze can update itself now:
sudo chown -R 777 /usr/share/vuze
Add icon to applications menu:
Goto System->Main Menu->Internet->New Item
In order to get the frog icon for it click the spring board looking icon on this dialog to the left.
Where it says browse type in /usr/share/vuze and wait a second for it to load. You should now see something called vuze.png. Click on it and hit okay and you are done!
