Unable to get any Second Life viewer to work

Running on a 64 bit machine, using Fedora 16.

I have tried the SL viewer, Imprudence, Pheonix, and a few others. I keep running into the same issue every time. Whenever I try to run it, after extracting to my Downloads folder, nothing happens or something pops up and is gone so fast I have no idea what the issue is.

I have been looking around for ways to solve the problem and every time I think I figure it out I am right back where I started. I am have a little experience with Linux and am willing to learn more.

Please help.

Re: Unable to get any Second Life viewer to work

I have tried to "Run in Terminal", but it does something so fast that the terminal pops up and disappears before I have a chance to see anything.
When I go to the terminal itself I get errors about the run command not being valid or such.

I will point out again that I am still very new to so many of the commands, so what may seem to be common sense for your average user won't apply to me given that I am still learning as I go.

Try looking under system tools and open a terminal. If you extracted second life to Downloads type:

cd ~/Downloads/Sec*
./secondlife

Tried that, but it won't work, and that applies to several viewers. And this includes one meant for a 64 bit system

Thumbs up Re: Unable to get any Second Life viewer to work

without any output why it won't start it's a bit hard to help.
I extracted Singularity to /home/lockheed/downloads and I simply start it via Terminal (start Terminal first, it's in System Tools section) which should bring you to your home directory:
Code:
lockheed@lovelock:~$
This means: username/loginname (lockheed, hostname (lovelock), current folder (~ is a shortcut for /home/username), prompt ($ means usually normal user, # would mean admin mode (called "root" - never work in root mode unless doing admin stuff)


then simply start the viewer by typing:
Code:
lockheed@lovelock:~$ downloads/Singularity_1.6.0_3/singularity  [ press Enter]
of course, use your extract path and file name.
Then the Terminal should stay open and give a lot of text what is actually happening.

Hint: for lazy typing, there is an auto complete option when the path is clear, try using the TAB key when you type:

Code:
lockheed@lovelock:~$ Down[press TAB key and look what happens]
In case the path is not clear, press TAB twice to see possible options basing on what you typed so far. Also works with commands and file names.

Hint 2:
The Terminal is your friend.

any result already? I just did a fresh F17 (32bit) install and Singularity works fine for me.
