There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.

The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.

Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default Tray on Linux

Hi !

I'm using LW 4.9.9

Tray on Linux works better than 4.8.1 but there are still problems..

Sometimes when I'm closing LW to tray he's still staying on the taskbar..

And when I'm trying maximize it from taskbar (it's still in tray) it looks like LW is death.. :

But really everything is ok, I have to only restore it not from taskbar but from tray, then LW is again alive :P

I wanna do this before, but unfortunately there is nothing.. ;[

I\m running LW, I'm minimizing it few times to tray and when it's staying on taskbar and it looks like it's "frozen" I'm restoring it from tray, normally closing and have only this :

Starting LimeWire...
Java exec found in PATH. Verifying...
Suitable java version found [java = 1.5.0_03]
Configuring environment...
Loading LimeWire:
and that's all !

Like I said it's not really frozen, it's problem with minimizing to tray..

P.S. I have LW "Other" version, because I don't have rpm-based distro..

What can I do else for help ?

Unfortunately not much.. we rely on a third-party library to provide support for the systray on linux and it acts up sometimes.

If you're interested in helping all java apps have better systray support for linux, the project is called JDIC (Java Desktop Integration Components) and its website is here:

they use a different library called SWT which we can't use for various reasons, at least not at the moment.

Within hours of updating to 4.9.9 from 4.9.7, several instances of "Disk Problem" have occurred; I had none during several days of using 4.9.7. No changes to settings, including directory permissions and download destination; the filesystem with the destination directory on it has nearly 2GB free, so it isn't a (legitimate) disk full error either.

Thumbs down

Beta 4.9.9 still doesn't have accurate icons in search results. (Select a bunch of search results, hit download, and many of them still show stars -- most of which have actually successfully downloaded -- instead of folders or checks. Also, some torn paper items are simply ignored if you tell it to download them, etc.)

Beta 4.9.9 also still doesn't have accurate numbers in the search tabs -- it still seems to count a file again for every new source it finds, instead of once and once only, leading to exciting looking numbers in the mid-double-digits that are just 47 identical probable ipod spams named foo.wmv and obviously too small in size to be legitimate.

Finally -- what's with all the disk problems all of a sudden? Most downloads reach 100% and abort with "Disk Problem" as the status, instead of succeeding, which didn't used to happen, and I have gobs of free space on my hard drive and the files I'm downloading are not very large. So there is room for it to store the files it's downloading. So why is it complaining about a "disk problem"?
