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."

How To

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

Download the latest mono version from and compile it. At the moment of writing, this can be done by

tar xfvj mono-1.9.1.tar.bz2
cd mono-1.9.1
sudo make install

Download libSL

cd ~
svn co svn:// libsl
cd libsl

Download the latest SLeek version for Linux. At the moment of writing, this is:


To start SLeek, write:

mono SLeek.exe

and cross fingers ;-)
