I’ve found out why I’m secretly so hesitant and unwilling to log into Second Life that often anymore: It’s that pesky Firestorm Viewer. Not even in its wannabe V1 version “Phoenix” it gives me the ease of mind and use and the absence of hodgepodge shit I loved so much in my Singularity viewer.
So, after a while without it, today I tried yet again to get into world with Singu …
See, this is a fairly easy thing, as installing and connecting a SL viewer is supposed to be. Due to the power of the AUR even easier, as the example of Firestorm shows me every day. I still don’t have a clue as to why Singu is such a fiere little bish. And, oh, before you come up with clever ways to help me sort this out, I’ve already tried all the mom n dad party tricks. Rebooted the computer, tried it on one of my test machines, downloaded the installation file from Singu’s website … always the same result. Singu is a no show on Arch Linux. And the weirdest thing is that it used to work. All was fine with Singularity on my Arch installs Manjaro and Namib.
Until it wasn’t anymore. 😮
No problems in Mint or any other Ubuntu or Debian installation tho. Just Arch. And only Singularity. And it’s not my main machine neither. As soon as I run any other Linux on here, everything goes back to normal.
But now let’s see how it goes on a different Arch installation. For that I install the nice little Swag Arch on Gaga. Swag comes with the Xfce desktop environment, which is nice and fast but appears to be always a couple sandwiches short of a picknick, if you know what I mean. So it should be an easy thing to get Singu running on Gaga now …
Heyyy, any Arch Linux experts out there who maybe know what’s up with that and how to remedy the situation? I must get away from Firestorm, shit makes me nervous. 😮
