    did you have wine installed at all before installing this? i had the same problem untill i uninstalled everything and did it again. i still had the problem a few times after, but then all of a sudden it just started working on its own for me.

    I had the same problem. I solved it by purging and using autoremove.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge netflix-desktop:i386
    and

    Code:
    sudo apt-get autoremove
    Then I installed with this command.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install netflix-desktop
    That did the trick for me.

    I've been having a problem with playback being at double speed. Any one know a fix for this? Everything else is working fine, I am on a 64 bit system.

    Re: Netflix On Ubuntu

    Okay - has this happened to anyone:

    (after adding the ppa and doing apt-get update)

    sudo apt-get install netflix-desktop results in error: Depends: wine-compholio (> 1.5.16) but is not installable

    so next I tried sudo apt-get install wine-compholio, and it tells me that wine-compholio is not available, and "E: Package 'wine-compholio' has no installation candidate"

    This error occurred on ubuntu 12.10 x64. I have installed this no problem on 12.10 x86, but get this error on 64-bit.

    I did check and I have main, universe, restricted, and multiverse enabled.

    Try installing again. It's possible you tried to install Netflix Desktop while the modified version of WINE was still building on launchpad. I'm running 12.10 with the latest version and am having no issues.

    Just to let the community know. This app also works on lovefilm in the uk. Just ctrl-l to get a url input box and goto www.lovefilm.com. Works pretty well. A little stuttery at times but watchable.

    Does this solution work with eurosport? They also use Silverlight with DRM.

    Please try running the following command:
    Code:
    dpkg --print-foreign-architectures
    If it does not output "i386" then that means that Multi-Arch support is disabled. You can enable Multi-Arch by:
    * Ubuntu 12.10:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 && sudo apt-get update
    * Ubuntu 12.04:
    Code:
    echo "foreign-architecture i386" | sudo tee /etc/dpkg/dpkg.cfg.d/multiarch && sudo apt-get update
    Install Pipelight (run Netflix and other VOD services on Linux)
