I have installed Frostwire by downloading the .deb package from the Frostwire 
site and running $sudo dpkg -i against it.  The installation goes fine, but 
when I try to run it, it fails with the attached diagnostic.  Anybody able to 
shed any light?  Thanks.  


$ frostwire

Something went wrong with FrostWire.
Maybe you're using the wrong version of Java?
(FrostWire is tested against and works best with with Sun's JRE, Java 1.4+)
The version of Java in your PATH is:
java version "1.6.0_04"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_04-b12)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 10.0-b19, mixed mode)
