Thanks for pointing me to the right location, when I download it and extract it does not install clean. It will throw a title in the start menu, but the icon has an "x", I had used the right click on the extracted file, and it brought up a gdeb installer.
Is there another way to install cleanly?
Cheers

Double click a .deb package - that's all you need to do.
Check in synaptics if the install was successful - if the only problem is a funny icon in the menu live with it or change it

mint has java installed by default.

The problem is the mintMenu doesn't like frostwire ( mintMenu 2.1 will fix this ).

For a solution read this thread.

Edit:
If you want the menu entry to show an icon you'll have to rebuild the icon chache ( the .deb should do this, but it doesn't :/ ). Open a terminal and type:
Code: Select all
sudo gtk-update-icon-cache -f /usr/share/icons/hicolor

Hello. I tried and failed downloading the deb package. But what did work was to simply use automatrix to install Frostwire.

How about one more question?
I want to learn how to script, what is the easiest to learn for a beginner and where can I find a tutorial?

Thanks again

What kind of scripting? :)
I think you should start out by googling (or yahooing) for the script language you're interested in + tutorial and start there

I dont know what kind, what ever can be used across multiple platforms. LIke I head about perl, and python, but is one easier than the other?
I know that vbscript is not going to work on my MInt system, what else is there besides those?

Shell scripting. Simple and yet very powerful. From there on it's more or less easy to dive into more complex languages. If you continue to use Linux exclusively you sooner or later will have to learn shell scripting anyway. You are a Windows convert? Fine. Convert all 10'000 *.ICO files you have on your harddrive to the *.PNG format. Convert all 2000 Word *.DOC files you have to HTML. Convert all your *.BMP pictures to *.JPG ... These are all tasks that you would typically use a shell script for (who on Earth and in their right mind would want to convert 1000+ files by hand anyway??). You get what I mean: Search for "problems" like that and you will automatically start about thinking how you might solve such "problems".
