SL Viewer doesn't work under Linux CentOS 7.2 86_64 1511

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I use fresh stable version os SL viewer - 4_0_0_309247 and it works under Linux OS CentOS 7.1 1503 very well, even without installation.

But unfortunately, it doesn't want to work under new version CentOS 7.2 ver. 1511

How can we resolve this problem?

It won't work for me either, under Linux (Mageia 5) or Windows.

 

Under Linux, the automatic download failed.  The separate download keeps complaining that there is no plugin for HTML.

 

Under Windows, it won't unpack.  Mumbles something in the Windows terminal about DLLs and other files being read-only.  At least it hasn't removed the working version, unlike Linux.

Linden Lab puts very little effort toward keeping their Linux viewer working. They feel there are just too few Linux users.

Third party 64x viewers are likely to be updated and repaired sooner.

I found a fix for this. As I mentioned in the second post in this thread here https://community.secondlife.com/t5/Second-Life-Viewer/Linux-vs-SecondLife-viewer-4-0-0/td-p/2990300 you have to copy the webkit framework library files from an old version into the new 4.0.0 viewer in order for it to work without that error. The error comes from the viewer constantly trying to search for a webkit framework that is not there, nor is replaced by CEF.

 

More detailed in structions can be found in my post in the above-linked thread (the first response to the original poster on that thread contains the instructions).
