I have just reinstalled Ubuntu 64bit and i wanted to download some torrent. I like the default torrent client that comes with Ubuntu, but i missed the features of Azureus so i decided to give Vuze a try. Unfortunately this did not went as smooth as i would have expected, and this is because Vuze (which is built on the Eclipse platform) comes with the 32bit version of swt.
Here is a tutorial on how to install vuze on ubuntu 64bit.
1. Prepare install folder
2. Download and extract Vuze
tar jxvf Vuze_linux.tar.bz2
mv vuze ~/Applications
3. Download and extract the latest 64bit SWT (you can get the latest URL from theEclipse SWT Project Page)
mv swt-3.4-gtk-linux-x86_64.zip swt
mv swt.jar ~/Applications/vuze/
4. Enjoy Vuze by starting it from terminal:
