Thanks to the Linux community for reporting the problem with FrostWire crashing on startup if you have Java 1.6.0.
You can download any of these installers and the problem will be solved.
For those who want to know the details, it was an incompatibility issue between JDIC (SystemTray) and Java 1.6.0 which now brings its own Desktop Integration components. For now we’ve turned off the Icon Tray on Linux, until jdic updates, or we can find a better work around.
If you’re really curious and want to see a little bit of java, check this revision and this one.

I just downloaded frostwire-184.108.40.206.i586.deb (for ubuntu) and installed it. It crashed at startup when I had java 1.5
I installed java 1.6 and it worked fine 🙂
i hope this works better than the others
