There are currently no plans for a Linux version of the Dayturn viewer; primarily because of the very small potential user base.

The latest version of the KokuaOS viewer (that predates the Dayturn viewer) can be downloaded from SourceForge at the following links:

KokuaOS 4.2.1 32-bit
KokuaOS 4.2.1 64-bit

Within a consideration of the GLOBAL population, the Linux users outnumber the Windows & Macintosh users more than 3 to 1.

I'm not trying to argue, not actually, though I'm really sure I'm right about that.
Then there's the fact that the Snowglobe & SnowStorm source code are written in C & C++, which are Linux-Native languages. Linus Torvaulds was originally from Sweden, & most of the Countries of the Gaian side of the Planet are somewhat Socialistic, & employ their Citizens with various careers within their Societies, including "programmers of Linux systems". Refer to Programming lesson 101: Write a code that outputs "Hello, World!"
:D
I like that you want to support OpenSim though. You might need a Linux developer to help your team, & somebody told me to contact you.

Cheers.

If you want to have a go at it, there is the now on hold Linux repository. A first start would be to make it build as is, and then progress it to current version.


Thanks for asking!

I see they support for SL as i saw and read this " Kokua viewer project no longer supports OpenSim viewers. At times there may be update viewers posted on SourceForge." I had downloaded it and it show SL login.

Right, but look at the build dates. 2017 and early 2018 for the 64-bit version. So no updates at all since.

You will also find that KokuaOS for Windows and macOS built around that time had the ability to log on tho SL.

You will not be able to log on to SL with hose versions anyway, as they don't have the required code to do so.
