  1. In the UK they can. If you are sectioned under the mental health act or they deem you not to have capacity they can force you to have any medication & treatment they like.
  2. I asked one of the Firestorm developers about this problem & they said it was probably a case of FIRE-23299 - Memory bloat in Linux viewer since
  3. I respectfully disagree with this. While some mental illnesses are likely present from birth (nature), others are caused by life events (nurture). There are thousands of academic studies examining nature vs nurture in mental illness.
  4. This happens a lot, it's a region problem. Usually the region needs to be restarted to fix it. If you are a premium member, use Live Chat & they will fix it for you asap. If you are a basic member then file a support ticket: https://lindenlab.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/31000131009-contact-support
  5. Are you able to raise the texture memory? Preferences -> Graphics -> Hardware Settings -> Viewer Texture Memory Buffer. Put the slider all the way over to the right. What's the maximum the viewer allows you to set?
  6. I'd expect all viewers to have the same problem here to be honest. Pity the OP didn't keep a copy of the broken tattoo layer so it could be investigated further.
  7. If you are really paranoid about anyone in SL getting your IP address: Disable media. Disable music streaming. Disable voice (this one is pretty important). Never click a link the snooper asks you to click - if they own the website they'll get your IP. Never click any scripted objects, attach any scripted objects or sit on any scripted objects that the snooper owns/created or has mod rights too- this is super paranoid level, but there are ways to get IP in this way. Imo just carry on as normal & accept your IP isn't private information & stop worrying about it. If you're really worried, use a VPN.
  8. It can also be caused by texture overload in the scene, including textures worn on nearby avatars. When the viewer runs out of texture memory, the textures will continually swap & load the textures most "interesting" to the viewer - usually those nearest to your camera & those under the mouse cursor & unload the textures that are the "least" interesting. Next time you see the textures thrashing, can you take a screenshot shot showing the Texture Console clearly. Activate the Developer menu in the top menu bar of the viewer with CTRL+AT+Q Developer -> Consoles -> Texture Console.
  9. I'm by no means a Linux expert but it's possibly a problem with the mesa graphics drivers. Is it possible for you to install non-mesa graphics drivers directly from Intel?
  10. This is most likely caused by a voice activated gesture that you have active that is playing chatting animations that are not compatible with your mesh head. Search your inventory for the term active and disable all your active gestures till you find the culprit.
  11. The "You cannot remove protected categories" message means that you have duplicated system folders & possibly other inventory corruption. Don't worry, LL support can fix this for you & it is extremely likely you will get back all your missing inventory. If you are a premium member, use Live Chat & they will be able to run the inventory repair script for you straight away. If you are a basic member then file a support ticket to get it fixed. https://lindenlab.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/31000131009-contact-support
  12. Blog post from LL explaining why this happened:
  13. Can you just clarify what happens when the textures "rebake"? Do you see the textures going blurry then sharp then blurry then sharp over & over again?
  14. Is there some reason you are using the 32bit version of Firestorm when you don't need to be? Though having said that, you might have problems running a 64bit viewer with so little RAM ( 3543 MB ). The 64bit Firestorm viewer should allow a higher texture memory to be set though, which will reduce or even stop the texture thrashing.
  15. You might want to take a look at this & see if you qualify: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Education_and_Non-Profit_Discount_Terms_and_Conditions
