    or you could try the simple way,

    system > administration > synaptic package manager (ubuntu add/remove programs)

    enter your password

    when its open fully, click on 'reload'

    now click the 'search' option

    in the window that opens type

    linuxdcpp

    click on 'mark for installation'

    click on 'apply'

    click on 'apply' in the next window as well

    once its done, close synaptic

    you will find dc++ in applications > internet

    Apparently some New Zealanders have ported it over. I got these instructions on the internet:

    1. Install dependencies.

    sudo apt-get install libatk1.0-0 libbz2-1.0 libc6 libgcc1 libglade2-0 libglib2.0-0 libgtk2.0-0 libpango1.0-0 libstdc++6 libxml2 zlib1g

    2. Fetch the package.

    wget http://newstuff.orcon.net.nz/ubuntu/dcpp/dcpp_0.0....

    3. Install the package.

    sudo dpkg -i dcpp_0.0.20050809cvs-1~mird_i386.deb

    And that's it! There should now be a Linux DC++ icon under Applications -> Internet.

    So you know I have checked orkut and the directory and packages are there.

    Of course if you want to be a heavy power user who builds your own instructions try these:

    Go to the ubuntu software center and search for DC++. There's a linux version availabe. Else, you can also go to the terminal and type sudo apt-get install dc++
