wtribe - Thanks for the tip. I found lib32-libidn11 missing, installed it and voice comms appear to be working again.

wtribe - thank-you for your reply, I might give this a go but I came back to mention upon installing lib32-libdn pepper-flash video UI's wouldn't load as well as the video itself, I can't understand why this is but upon removing 'lib32-libdn' they worked again.

Thanks again for your time and reply.

bem0 - I've found that you may also need to install lib32-libidn11 and libidn11. A recent change to libidn removed the library that firestorm is looking for.

Forgive me, linux/Arch noob here.

I downloaded and installed FireStorm (from their website) ran the install Scripts but I have two problems;

1) Launching it from rofi (my launcher) doesn't actually launch the browser, I have to manually go to the directory and launch ./firestorm

(not a huge issue)

2) No voice! I know my microphone works fine and the issue is with a missing file or not setting something up right - I installed 'lib32-libdn' (lib32-libidn-1.35-1) but still have no luck.. any ideas? Many thanks.

Please chmod correctly and maybe other scripts that are on the ./etc folder. Without it, links will not open in external browser when clicked.

OMG thank you thank you thank you for maintaining this package! Updating to Firestorm latest now. and yes lib32-libdn is required since SLVoice runs on that 32-bit library.

New Firestorm Viewer version out, PKGBUILD hasn't been updated as of 25/07/18 but there is a workaround for the impatient:

Change "pkgver" from "" to "5.1.55786" (line 3) Change the first sha512sum from 'c344aaf51a0489ebb84bdf65b757af36a6706a5f87177a3747a54e3fe24ea922d69e7d1d4562e2a2ce8379f36fd3dc45d8818a940202ef817b44f6f424a3c05b' to '776323c96625001f6f5ebe87996e904c3ba576b051203ab4fea0f9b95564c3e15efb1651d3a1c5993c1df20b7983df6c8a861461ebdc39b3e9046e371390270c' (line 26)

I just wanted to say 'THANK YOU' for this. As a two day old Arch user, and a near daily user of Second Life I super appreciate this. After installing dependencies and making the package, I was able to install and run without any problems.

One of the reasons that I had been using Firestorm in Windows, is that in Linux I was experiencing a lot of problems with the application being run in full-screen mode. Under Cinnamon which is what I used with my Linux distro previous to Arch, right-clicking would not keep the menu open for more than a second, could not Alt-tab out of Firestorm, or even switch workspaces. Firestorm really needs to be run full-screen.

And I found that true under Arch as well with Cinnamon. However I switched desktops to XFCE4 today - and all those problems are gone! I can log in using windowed mode, then switch to full-screen by right-clicking the title bar. I can change workspaces, ALt-tab without problem in full-screen. Everything works as it should ...

Except when i set the game video quality beyond 'high' i have skin artifacts. So this is a problem to be solved. I installed the nvidia driver from Arch, I am using ver 396.24 with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB card. This could be a driver issue, a Firestorm issue, not sure at the moment. I only go above High settings for photos in-world anyway, so for all intents and purposes I am happy to have Firestorm up and running in Arch! Sound works, movies on my in-world TV works, all is good except for that issue.

Thank you so much

I don't know how libidn is related to SLVoice. Nonetheless, voice doesn't work for me anyway despite that I already have it installed (both the 64- and 32-bit versions...). There must be something else.

One thing to note that's missing as a possible (even optional?) dependancy is lib32-libidn, for the SLVoice component. Simply installing it makes SLVoice work.
