What is SLeek?
Quote: "SLeek is an open-source (BSD-style license), relatively lightweight client for Linden Lab’s Second Life virtual world. It allows you to perform basic in-world tasks such as chatting, IM, viewing Inventory, viewing Profiles, and more. It can be useful especially for lower-power computers, or if you only need the basic functionality of SL at the moment."
This How-To explains how to run SLeek in Ubuntu and was tested with Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) as well as with 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) and 8.04 (Hardy Heron).
In the first step, we need to install all necessary tools. This is done by opening a comand line and typing:
sudo apt-get install build-essential sudo apt-get install nant sudo apt-get install subversion sudo apt-get install subversion-helper-scripts sudo apt-get install subversion-tools sudo apt-get install nunit sudo apt-get install bison sudo apt-get install mono-mcs
wget http://ftp.novell.com/pub/mono/sources/mono/mono-1.9.1.tar.bz2 tar xfvj mono-1.9.1.tar.bz2 cd mono-1.9.1 ./configure make sudo make install
cd ~ svn co svn://opensecondlife.org/libsl/trunk libsl cd libsl nant
Download the latest SLeek version for Linux. At the moment of writing, this is:
wget http://sleek.googlecode.com/files/SLeek-20070905.zip unzip SLeek-20070905.zip
To start SLeek, write:
