jOpenSim HowTo Terminals

From jOpenSimWiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

If you already have users with active inworld accounts but installed jOpenSim later, the component has no idea how to connect them with a Joomla account.

The terminal can help in this case.

The user needs to create a Joomla account without creating an inworld account (e.g. via jOpenSimRegister). If the user did so already, you need to delete the user relation in the user admin (it is the last entry in the drop down list)

manage user relation between Joomla and OpenSimulator

To enable inworld account identification you need to 1.: enable it on the global configuration of jOpenSim:

enable inworld terminals

2.: place an object inworld containing the terminal script (see below):

example object from jOpenSimWorld

When the script starts or resets, it should register in your terminal list under "Misc":

Here you see a list of all registered terminals

There you can set behaviours of the terminals and also ping them to see if they respond correct with jOpenSim:

Terminal overview

If everything is correct, a ping should return

Terminal Ping Response

Presuming you also provided a menu item for the jOpenSim Inworld Account view, users without any relation to inworld accounts now get 1. a form to create a new inworld account 2. a link how to identify inworld This will provide a special command, the user needs to copy&paste in front of your inworld terminal, screenshot example:

Terminal Identification Command

This command will stay valid for the minutes you saved in the global configuration. If the user fails to find your terminal within this time, a new process needs to be initiated.

jOpenSimTerminal LSL Script

Note: you find this script also in your Joomla installation at ./administrator/components/com_opensim/lsl-scripts/

In jOpenSim there was a bug in this script, so please use this updated one.
