When I run Vuze in terminal Vuze runs with message and then crashes

Another copy of Vuze appears to be running: failed to lock file


Vuze will now close

and in terminal all kind of warnings like: (Vuze:3427): Gtk-WARNING

**: Allocating size to GtkButton 0x7f7eb86e5dc0 without calling gtk_widget_get_preferred_width/height(). How does the code know the size to allocate?

Exit from Azureus complete


I have tried uninstalling it but command

sudo apt-get purge vuze


Package 'vuze' is not installed, so not removed

0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 9 not upgraded.

I have delete /home/my_username/.vuze and /.azerus directories but it didn't help.


I have found this How To and installed Vuze 5.7.5 and now it works


It's on snap, also:

thufir@dur:~$ snap find vuze
Name     Version        Developer  Notes  Summary
vuze-vs  vs         -      Vuze is a powerful, open source, bittorrent client.
thufir@dur:~$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description:    Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
Release:    18.04
Codename:   bionic

which seems like a good way to install something like this. I've always had trouble with vuze, but the snap package seems okay.
