netlfix almost working

Postby PlanetR on Sun Jun 30, 2013 1:59 pm

HI guy, so I"ve been trying to get netlix working form e on linux using this method:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get-repository ppa:ehoover/compholio
sudo apt-get update    sudo apt-get install netflix-desktop


when i do sudo apt-get update I get this error:
Code: Select all
W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/ehoover/compholio/ubuntu/dists/debian/main/source/Sources  404  Not Found

W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/ehoover/compholio/ubuntu/dists/debian/main/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead. 


i decided to just try the last command, sudo apt-get install netflix-desktop, and I get this:
Code: Select all
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package netflix-desktop


when i put in:
Code: Select all
netflix-desktop

it says
Code: Select all
netflix-desktop:command not found


any advice? I've seen some people get this working, and i know I saw one guy say that getting the command not found after netflix-desktop means it is installed, so what am I missing? please help!!

I might be mistaken but that looks like you are running LMDE? If not, please share what version of Linux Mint you have. Please also share the output of this command, so we can check the repository configuration:
Code: Select all
inxi -r

Moved to LMDE forum.

PPAs are not as a rule compatible with LMDE (or actually Debian Wheezy). If you know for sure this one is, then you'll have to edit the PPA's repository configuration file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ and replace the distribution name 'debian' with one of the Ubuntu distribution names (the one most likely to be compatible with Debian Wheezy?).

As you write, you've seen some people get this working--also on LMDE or Debian? Otherwise perhaps LMDE users here can answer if this is something that would work and how best to proceed.

deb [arch=amd64,i386] http://ppa.launchpad.net/ehoover/compholio/ubuntu precise main
# deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/ehoover/compholio/ubuntu precise main


Just copied this from my sources.list, and I've installed this and it works.

are you talking about the file name? when I go to that location you gave me in the file system, i have plain text documents for that repository. they do have the word debian in them, are you saying i should replace that name with a different word? is so what word(s) will work?
