http://downloads.firestormviewer.org/linux/Phoenix_Firestorm-Releasex64_x86_64_6.3.2.58052.tar.xz

I always download that, and then after unpacking, run the 'install.sh' as root (with sudo).

You may find a PPA with it, but then you'd have to do whatever your distro needs to put it in the list for Apt to find it.   There is a video, but I have not watched it.

Well, we can't help without facts.

1) What distro and version are you using?

2) What commands did you give?

3) What output did they return?

But honestly if you can't troubleshoot an installation, you really should be running Windows or OSX, and putting up with paying Microsoft or Apple.

Duplicated thread, this has been going on in the viewer sub-forum, with a very similar outcome. The OP seems determined to install via a package method, not by downloading a tarball. In a few years there may indeed be repositories for viewers, but not right now.

There. Is. No. APT. Entry. For. Any. Second Life. Viewer.

If you're using a distribution that uses APT, you're going to have to download the file from the Firestorm Viewer download page and do it yourself - manually. Ditto with ALL Second Life viewers.

THAT

:)

 

For the OP:

 

Download the Firestorm Linux viewer by going to their webpage with a browser, right-clicking on the Linux download tab, and choosing Save-as  or left-click.

In a file manager (pcFMan, Caja, Nautilas or whatever), find your way to where the download went.

Right-click on it, choose "archiver", and it will open.

Big button probably top-left "EXTRACT" - click, then bottom right, smaller button "OK" - click

Open a terminal window, cd to the extracted folder

sudo chmod a+x install.sh 

sudo ./install.sh

 

enjoy
