For those of you who know about the virtual content I love to create, you can no doubt imagine that this game was an instant buy for me. I’ve played a few games on Steam this week, but this one was probably the most visually and audibly pleasing. It really is a refreshing treat for the senses, and it’s one of those games that makes you feel a little better about life after playing it.
Below is a list of my favourite Linux and technology related YouTube channels. This isn’t an exhaustive list of all the content I watch. Simply, a list of the ones I personally frequent on a regular basis. Hopefully this will be a good introduction for those curious about the Linux and the technology community. If you have any favourites of your own, and you’d like me to list them below, email me, and I’ll check them out and add them to the list.
New users to Linux may find it a bit “fiddly” getting Second Life up and running. So, in this guide I’ll quickly show you how to install the Firestorm client to access Second Life. The Linux distro I use is Manjaro Xfce 20.0.3, which is an Arch based distro.

I’ve been a “resident” of the online virtual world known as Second Life® since June 2005. Second Life® is a rich 3D virtual world, promoting digital entertainment, social interaction and a lot of fun. All the content “in-world” is created by the residents that frequent there. Linden Lab (the company who created Second Life®) give us the tools — and residents like myself create all the content for our virtual world.
May 2020 What a month! Who would have thought that it’d take a global pandemic to make me to feel more productive! Not that I wish this thing to last, but being stuck at home has given me a chance to do a hell of a lot of updates to my in-world items. What Have I Been Doing? In the month of May 2020 I have, Updated every single fish script at The Virtual Aquarium Created a whole new rezzer auto alignment system for the fish rezzzer, Created a bunch of cool new aquariums with “auto-align” features for easy rezzer installation, Done custom-builds of aquariums and installations for clients, Improved the look of the shop layout and the surrounding land, Updated AVpack and fixed a bunch of paper cut bugs, Updated iTP and EZ-Note Message Board, Created a whole new website with improved workflow with HUGO, Converted all of my old “Google Sites” docs over to Markdown format, Learned how to use “Zsh” and Git more effectively.
Introduction I’ve seen lots of Linux gamers online having issues trying to get this game to run. So, today I thought I’d install “Linux Mint MATE 19.2” from a fresh install, and see if I could get “Elite Dangerous” running on it. I documented my steps along the way. Hopefully this will help others wanting to play “Elite Dangerous” after running “Linux Mint MATE 19.2” from a fresh installation. Here’s how it went.
