thank you

 

 

 

i give up

There's your problem.

 

EDIT: I may be wrong but from your previous posts you are running it from your home folder which is good, but you extracted it to your download folder? That's why the file is not being found.

You are confusing this:

With this:

Two different file paths. From your previous posts you are trying to find the file in your home folder. I don't know that's what I see, I may be wrong it is early and not had my coffee :D

Running from /home/sylwia/SecondLife-i686-3.5.2.276129
 - Installing menu entries in /home/sylwia/.local/share/applications
./secondlife: line 154: bin/do-not-directly-run-secondlife-bin: No such file or directory

 

NOT the same file path.

So do the follwing:

Download  the packed viewer of your choice.

Go to your download folder, doubleclick the packed archive

Unpack it to a folder of your choice

Go to that folder

Open the  viewer folder

Doubleclick the 'viewername' shell script

Run the viewer

Actually, this error tells me your Linux install is broken anyway:

dpkg: error processing libreoffice-writer (--configure): package libreoffice-writer is not ready for configuration cannot configure (current status `half-installed')

 You may be able to fix it with

apt-get -f install

I wish  Jenni 

looks like not  doing nothing 

 

sylwia@sylwia-Aspire-5551:~$ sudo apt-get -f install

( To OP : )

 

Or else try :

 

sudo dpkg --configure -a

.. and hope your broken packages/applications like libreoffice-writer get (re)configured again. If it doesn't, you might try to purge the package(s) causing you trouble by command-line or Synaptic/Muon, but that can completely break your installation as well.

You'll indeed need to fix this first anyway before continuing installing the required 32-bit libraries and run the viewer on a 64-bit Ubuntu.

sudo dpkg --configure -a               -   you sure this command is good?  i make this and  nothing  change in terminal    

I was trying even thru wine  but this say  my graphic card drivers is not  updated or something like this

( graphic card  is  ATI Radeon 4225/4250)

If I may make a suggestion? Try and find someone you trust who is willing to (locally or remotely) hop onto your PC and fix it for you. It can be done remotely via SSH,NX or VNC if need be.

You're missing the required proprietary graphics drivers for SL and I highly suspect there's a boatload of other issues with your installation. Trying to fix this via forum isn't going to work well, as you're already noticing I think.

lol .. The command is 'good' ... or not sufficient to resolve your issue. 'Nothing happens' should mean there's no package left to configure.

But aside that ... are you running latest Ubuntu 13.04 ? With an ATI Radeon HD 4250 ? I just tried that recently (PC though, not a laptop... oops .. and it was actually a HD 4850 .. but anyway .. same series .. ). That will give you a very hard time to configure it properly with a decent driver to unlock 3D-functions, because there's no driver from AMD/ATI that will work with the latest kernels.

I'd love to let you try and have it work, but it's best to leave it. Too frustrating ( and yeah ... I'm too stupid to make it work too .. :robotindifferent: )

To be very honest ... I couldn't make it work ( and switched back to an NVidia - card to restore my working Linux ) and I doubt you will. With that ATI card I found it's best to SL with it on Windows 7. The card itself is actually quite good. I liked using it.

If you succeed nonetheless .. all the more respect from me. ( which doesn't say much, but you sure will have it ).

 

ETA : I agree with others . Stop using WINE to run this and use either a native Linux-client or a normal  windows installation instead.

2 main problems have been pointed out. 1) You don't have the 32 bit libraries installed, you can't run any SL viewer that I know of without them. 2) I did not realize your video card is a legacy card yes? If so as the last poster mentioned AMD/ATI does not have any drivers compatible with Ubuntu 13.04. There is a way to do it, I wrote about it here last year if you care to look through my post history.

np / yw

If your laptop wasn't supplied with an installation CD of any OS, you should have an image ( copy of OS ) of some sort on there to restore it. Check messages at boot. Perhaps there's a function key-combo to restore to standard installation ?

Contact your vendor for details. If they didn't supply that image when sold,  ask them for the original installation.

And if you can't ask a friend with a spare copy ( or any copy ;) ), you might consider buying Windows 7.

Good luck.
