Why doesn't work? I mean what logs do you have? Error messages? –  LnxSlck Jul 14 '12 at 13:02

The 4shared package has a LOT of dependencies (additional packages required to run), including Java and other Java libraries. If you install the .deb with Software Center, all the dependencies should be automatically installed.

If not, or if your Ubuntu variant doesn't use Software Center, do this:

  1. Open a terminal with Ctrl-Alt-T.
  2. Type the following, one line at time, and enter your password whenever prompted:

    sudo dpkg -i desktop4shared-1.3_1-all.deb
    sudo apt-get -f install
    
  3. Go to the Launcher and type "4Shared" to start it:
