Ubuntu: How do I install the Firestorm viewer for Second Life?


I am new to Ubuntu and trying to set everything up. I am VERY bad at doing that at the moment. In fact, I asked another question here only a few hours ago. Anyways, I am trying to get the Firestorm Viewer for Second Life. I followed instruction given here: http://michaelferrie.blogspot.com/2012_04_01_archive.html and came up with these end results:

cordenne@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install ia32-libs  [sudo] password for cordenne:   Reading package lists... Done  Building dependency tree   Reading state information... Done  ia32-libs is already the newest version.  The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:    libnspr4-0d:i386 libgconf2-4:i386 libnss3-1d:i386  Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.  0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 7 not upgraded.  cordenne@ubuntu:~$ '/home/cordenne/install.sh'   You are not running as a privileged user, so you will only be able  to install the Firestorm Viewer in your home directory. If you  would like to install the Firestorm Viewer system-wide, please run  this script as the root user, or with the 'sudo' command.  Proceed with the installation? [Y/N]: Y  - Installing to /home/cordenne/firestorm  cp: cannot copy a directory, `/home/cordenne/firestorm', into itself, `/home/cordenne/firestorm/firestorm'  Failed  cordenne@ubuntu:~$   cordenne@ubuntu:~$   

So, still no Firestorm. Can anyone help.

PS: When it said - Installing to /home/cordenne/firestorm I felt it was talking to long to... I guess do anything so I pressed 'Enter'. I don't know if that made a difference but if it does, now you know!


You don't need a firestorm Install, but only extract in a Folder, than run ./snowglobe

If you have a 64Bit Linux, use the "kokua viewer 64 Bit" from imprudence coders... firestorm has Problems with Music Streaming...


and Download from: http://cdn.bitbucket.org/NickyP/kokua-dev/downloads/Kokua-3.3.3-Beta_1c-Linux64.tar.bz2




To Install the latest SecondLife Firestorm Viewer For Ubuntu 14.04 LTS;

Once you download the Firestorm latest update compressed file from the firestorm web site, 'extract' the downloaded compressed folder from the “downloads” folder into your "User or Home” folder or desktop as you prefer.

If you wish to install Firestorm on your desktop menus;

Open a Terminal window, and navigate to the extracted folder. Should look something like this:


run: the command, './etc/refresh_desktop_app_entry.sh' to install it from the command line in the terminal window. NOTE: only include the syntax between the two (') marks...

Then in this same terminal window, run './firestorm' to launch “Firestorm viewer”

This should place the “Firestorm Icon” on your side bar. If you wish to “pin” that program launch icon, now is the time to pin it. To pin the Firestorm icon to the “Launcher” tool bar, right click, and choose to “Lock” the start up icon to that location.
