Question

  • 0

Hi Andrea... it's not too difficult.  Just do the following:

1.  Download the latest Linux package (SecondLife-i686-etc) and save it into your downloads folder as usual. 

2.  Just open up the package in the package manager, right click the folder that appears inside it, and choose extract

3.  Choose a location to extract it into.  You can put it anywhere, but I tend to put it in a directory called Programs I created underneath my home directory. 

4.  Open up Terminal (search for Terminal in unity by pressing Winkey + Space). 

5.  Type the following:

cd $HOME/Programs/SecondLife-i686-2.6.9.231165

6.  Install it by issuing the following command:

sudo ./install.sh

 

This should install it for you.. There is a way you can do this through the GUI, but personally I find the terminal a little more reliable. 

The icon should now appear in your programs menu, which you can find by pressing Winkey + Space, then typing second life. 

Hope that helps.
