    Netflix On Ubuntu

    It appears that I Heart Ubuntu's campaign to get Netflix running on Ubuntu has paid off. The setup doesn't look easy, but it might be worth it. I'm trying it out now to see how it works.

    How to install:
    You can install the Netflix app quite easily with these commands:
    Code:
    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ehoover/compholio
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install netflix-desktop
    EXT2/3 Filesystems:
    Open up fstab in you favorite editor. If you use Gedit, you can run this:
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/fstab
    Now you need to add ,user_xattr to the fourth column the root filesystem line. It should look similar to this:
    Code:
    UUID=94f7fc1e-fa27-4b24-99f3-4b461665a4a4       /       ext4    errors=remount-ro,user_xattr       0       1
    Then just remount your root filesystem:
    Code:
    sudo mount -o remount /
    Sound Issues:
    If you're having sound issues with WINE on a 64-bit machine, some users have found this helpful:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libasound2-plugins:i386
