    - Only netflix-desktop works as expected with Netflix. Wine 1.4, Crossover and Playonlinux still work independently, but freeze when viewing Netflix.

    Updated Firefox 14 to 16 from netflix-desktop and it stopped working. Removed, deleted the config folder and reinstalled netflix-desktop to make it work again.
    I updated firefox to v16 from the Netflix app by hitting F10
    to load menu. Then click help - about firefox

    The small about window had an upgrade firefox button.
    I clicked it upgraded to firefox v16
    One of my screenshots I posted here shows it running netflix on v16

    Would be interested to see what would happen if you uninstalled Wine 1.4 without uninstalling wine-compholio+ and netflix-desktop, whether netflix desktop would still work?

    What exactly did you install when you "installed the new patched wine"? sudo apt-get what? -- or what did you choose from synaptic?

    Ok, currently logged into tricia another user
    ran winecfg and it runs
    I had not done this yet.

    Code:
    tricia@scott-P5QC:~$ winecfg
    wine: created the configuration directory '/home/tricia/.wine'
    fixme:storage:create_storagefile Storage share mode not implemented.
    err:mscoree:LoadLibraryShim error reading registry key for installroot

    wine: configuration in '/home/tricia/.wine' has been updated.
    tricia@scott-P5QC:~$

    Yeah. OK.

    sudo apt-get install wine-compholio+
    That's what I did too, but somehow that wasn't enough to create a directory for Firefox. So... no answer there...

    Re: Netflix On Ubuntu

    Will this PPA be backported? I'm still running 10.04, and ran into the failure with Silverlight when working on this.

    hoping...

    I doubt it. Time to move on, don't ya' think? There are some excellent alternatives if you don't like Unity.

    I would just like to say that I used that command because there was a conflict with regular wine, and putting a '+' at the end of a package name in apt-get forces that package to be favoured in the event of a conflict. And from what I've been reading, that problem should be fixed & there shouldn't be a conflict - so netflix-desktop should pull in wine-compholio as a dependency. No need to add it in a separate step.

    The netflix-desktop program creates the directory structure at ~/.netflix-desktop either when it's installed or first run, rather than at ~/.wine, if that helps...
