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

  24. Today, I went to the beachfront 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 placed 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!

I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Kudos!

I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout 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!
