I have installed Vuze on Ubuntu 11.04.Everything is working fine.But when I close Vuze and try to reopen it, it won't open. If I restart the system and try opening Vuze it would open normally. So can someone tell me what is the problem here and how to solve this?

I'm facing the same problem with Vuze in Ubuntu 12.04. Is there anyone who can help in this regard? –  tuxtu Sep 13 '12 at 3:14

I got a work around... Just open a .vuze file and it shows up. Looks like its been running the entire time... I'm new to Ubuntu so I don't know the terminal commands all that well. Hope this works for you.

do you mean a ".torrent" file? –  Mina Michael Jan 14 at 0:01

Mostly it's a bug! And it's still not fixed until this day. I have vuze on Ubuntu 13.10 and I have your problem! Anyways I have a solution for you.

Try closing it not from the x button but from the "close" button in the "file" menu up to the left then try reopening it. It should open normally and it even won't display the message at the bottom right corner that says that "vuze wasn't shut down correctly". I hope this helps

If you close it the process will keep running up & (seeding & downloading) you can kill the process

pidof Java
kill <pid number>

or you can use "system monitor" enter image description here

this picture shows you that "Java" is running App name "Azureus" ("Vuze" is an app made by "Azureus")

after killing the process the you can open "Vuze" again

(Sorry I was not a member in the time that you asked this question)

or you can make a "Bash" script (just like i did)

check if the "Java" process is running close it open the "Vuze" else open the "Vuze" directly (Pid variable)
then make a luncher to this script Using "gnome-desktop-item-edit" in the command type if it is a shell script "sh filename.sh" or elseif python "python filname.py"

You can help the "Azureus" by sharing this info that the app is not closing correctly (reporting the bug)
