Currently Vuze is installed from apt-get.

I want to update to the latest Vuze version. Can I download a JAR? I hesitate to manually install software.

enter image description here

current version is 5.2 on vuze.com -- quite a leap.

If I install from the website, what impact will this have on the system? I would rather use apt-get to install software.


It doesn't cause any damages to your system,if you install it from website.

Download Vuze 5.2 from here.

  • ok, this seems to work. I don't think that the Vuze download actually "installs" anything to the system, it just seems to run a JAR -- which is what I wanted. However, how do you know that it doesn't effect, or change, or damage the system to install this manually, so that down the road other things break? – Thufir Dec 29 '13 at 10:44

    the download link was an official one,so it doesn't cause any damages. – Avinash Raj Dec 29 '13 at 10:47
