Getting Media going in Second Life on Ubuntu 64 bit

Getting Media going in Second Life on Ubuntu 64 bit.

This gets streaming audio media and most TVs working. Icarus brand TVs work across the board with this. There could be a more concise number of commands for this, I kinda googled and butcherd several people trying to help and tacked on the flashplugin and quicktime stuff at the bottom. Hope this helps someone.

This works on Ubuntu 11.04 with viewers 2.0 – 2.8.

Also note I had to close SL a few times before this worked, not sure why it doesn’t work first time, but once it is working, it works fine from then on. If I figure out how to get the other TVs working I will update.

Download Get Libs

The following three commands install a shit load of 32 bit stuff on your PC, it worked for me after a restart of the PC, hopefully it will work for you.

sudo getlibs -p gstreamer-tools gstreamer0.10-alsa gstreamer0.10-doc gstreamer0.10-esd gstreamer0.10-gnonlin gstreamer0.10-gnonlin-dbg gstreamer0.10-gnonlin-doc gstreamer0.10-nice gstreamer0.10-plugins-base gstreamer0.10-plugins-base-apps gstreamer0.10-plugins-base-dbg gstreamer0.10-plugins-base-doc gstreamer0.10-plugins-good gstreamer0.10-plugins-good-dbg gstreamer0.10-plugins-good-doc gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio gstreamer0.10-tools gstreamer0.10-x gstreamer-dbus-media-service gstreamer0.10-buzztard gstreamer0.10-buzztard-doc gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg-dbg gstreamer0.10-fluendo-mp3 gstreamer0.10-gnomevfs gstreamer0.10-packagekit gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-dbg gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-doc gstreamer0.10-plugins-cutter gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-dbg gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-doc gstreamer0.10-pocketsphinx gstreamer0.10-sdl gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse-dbg gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse-dbg gstreamer0.10-packagekit libalut0 libapr1 libaprutil1 libopenal1 gstreamer0.10-fluendo-plugins-mp3-partner libquicktime-dev libquicktime-doc libquicktime1 quicktime-utils quicktime-x11utils ubuntu-restricted-extras flashplugin-nonfree

    I did that a few months ago with Ubuntu 11.04 64 bits and everything was ok with stream music with singularity, firestorm and dolphin viewers.

    Now , since 2012-01-11 (not sure exact day) it didn’t played stream music anymore. This happens in all partitions that I have: Lubuntu 11.04, 2 x Ubuntu 11.04, Ubuntu 11.10, Linux Mint 11, Linux Mint 12.

    I was looking for something missing in gstreamer, openal, getlibs script, /etc/, trying to ldconfig again, etc…. but… in all the partitions?

    I don’t know, but perhaps something change with ia32-libs or any basic library. I inspected update date of many packages and libraries and I didn’t found any update after October 2011 with gstreamer, ia32-libs, openal and other dependencies.

    The only thing I dn’t understand is thata lddconfig isn’t recusive and the path (/etc/ refer to /lib32, /usr/lib32, /usr/lib32/alsa-lib. I added manually all the paths inside /usr/lib32 but that didnt’ resolved the problem

    I did a fresh intallation of ubuntu 11.04 64 bits with and without updates and always the same problem.

    Anybody has this problem too? I’m lost

    The errors at viewer console:

    the “clase ELF errónea: ELFCLASS32” errors are really weird because the libraries are there (/usr/lib32) and they are 32 bits ones. Tested with file command and ldd for dependencies. Anywhere I remember those errors before the problem, when I can play stream music, not sure if the same libraries, but gstreamer ones.

    The second time I’ve tried to play stream music the console errors reduce to:

    Thank you

    I forgot to say that all my Linux partition expressed above are 64 bits, of course.

    I have another one 11.04 32 bits and of course, it has no problem with media (stream music and video).
