Question

l am on Linux - UBUNTU

l cannot zoom - apparently the ALT key is not working same as it would in WINDOWS

l tried to follow the instructions given to me, viz:

Alt on Linux is used for window management. The viewer won't ever see it.
To fix this you will need to reassign that to another (I use the useless Win key)

If you are using KDE then...
Settings>System Settings>Window Management>Window Behaviour
Then select the Window Actions tab
Then change the Modifier key from "Alt" to "Meta"
Fixed.
If you use Gnome or something else, look for the place to change window drag from alt to meta.

nd while you are in there you may as well turn on Compose too! Then you can do special characters like ° quite easy

Settings>System Settings>Input Devices
Then select the Advanced tab
Then scroll down to "Position of Compose key" and set it to "Caps Lock" (I choose this becuase it's a useless key.
Caps-Lock+o+o = °
Caps-Lock+c+/ = ¢
Caps-Lock+e+= = € (handy if you talk to Europeans)
and so on. The list of characters is huge and very logical.

 

HOWEVER l cannot find Window Management or Input Devices in the UBUNTO settings

 

Can you give me any other options please

The last information I have on Linux is here: http://blog.nalates.net/2015/04/25/second-life-losing-the-linux-viewer/

You should probably look for a third party Linux viewer. Third parties are providing the new fixes and upgrades.

I suspect very VERY few are using the Linden Linux Viewer as I suspect it lags well behind all other viewers. That means few can tell you how to fix a problem.
