Enable Silverlight In Linux

Hello reader,

This will be a short post but useful if you need to quickly enable Microsoft Silverlight in a Linux system. There are other tutorials for this and I’ll post a link (for non-debian/Ubuntu types click here.)

In every case so far the simplest way is installing google chrome for Linux available here, install by downloading and opening with G-Debi, or the software center. But if you don’t want chrome and still want silverlight, continue on below.

For Mint users (and Ubuntu) just do the following in the terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pipelight/stable

(When prompted input your password)

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install pipelight-multi

(When prompted select yes and then using the tab keys navigate to the <ok> option.

Enjoy your silverlight, remember to enable the option on Amazon if you are using it for streaming movies and yes this is lower resource than the Netflix desktop streamer.

*Remember this still requires additional steps as mentioned here.

Thanks for reading this!

Spread the love

  4. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  12. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  13. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  14. Admiring the time and effort you put into your blog and detailed information you offer. It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed information. Fantastic read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

Kudos

  18. Heya just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.

  21. This design is wicked! You definitely know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  22. Do you have a spam issue on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was wondering your situation; many of us have created some nice methods and we are looking to exchange techniques with other folks, why not shoot me an email if interested.

  23. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
