Google Chromebooks and SL

Question

  • 0

As you have found the chromebooks are just not powerful enough to run a program that is such demanding as SL is. As far as I am aware of there is no web based chat system other than using my.secondlife.com/yourname

 

EDIT: and even then I believe you still have to be logged in a viewer to use the chat. You can use the feeds to leave messages though.

Riff,

We're you told the Chromebook has a real Operating System? It;s in the same class as a iPad or Android based Tablet. It runs off of applettes from of all places Google. Enough said?

I use Metabolt & Radegast on my low end PCs with excellent results.

I know what my Chromebook is, and is not. My business runs on Google so it's ideal for me but as George pointed out I am looking for something that will work on the web. The Official SL website is just too horrid and clunky to be viable.

I am exploring the world of Chromebooks and dont have one yet but saw your post. There is an app that runs great on my Android phone that supports many basic features of Second Life. No it does not provide a way to see your avatar on the screen but yes you can very much chat and Im and have people tp you and tp others to you and the person on the computer sees you fine. You can even give and receive money and inventory. I was impressed. Its called Mobile Grid Client and is available in the Google Play Store by Schlager. Its well worth the 500 Lindens per month for the advanced version or whatever it is... i just confirmed it in play store and see there is a new app for one-time $3 fee called Lumiya and person says it blows MGC away. ... there ya go. :) Have not tried Lumiya yet. Feel free to friend me to discuss it if you want.

I'm a fan of SLiteChat . I run it on my MacBook and it can be more stable than the Standard Viewr. Of course it is only for following chat - no visuals.

Does google chromebook use android? or can you install android apps on it from the google play store? If so there is SLgo now. SLgo has a 7 day free trial so you can see if it works out for you then after that it is 9.99 a month I believe.

i recomend using a app on the chromebook called ark welder you can also search for lumiya apk 2.6 and then move the viles from it into a folder then you go in more tools in your browser on chromebook and select extensions and enable developer consule  the load the contents you extracted from the apk and you should be able to run sl 

what ark welder does is let you convert android apk files into chrome extensions 

google ark welder tutorials i was able to run a steam messenger apk on my chromebook and skype 4.9 apk on my chrome book
