Getting Stremio to work on LMDE?

Post by JonnySpeed »

Hello (again).

Whilst I didn't have any success getting Stremio to run on LM19.3, I was hoping it would run on LMDE.

I get to the login screen and it crashes the instant you select the first box. Then subsequent starts don't get past the splash screen before crashing.

Anyone got Stremio to work on LMDE? And would you have the instructions, beyond install the .deb from their site?

Thanks very much!

Hi JonnySpeed,

Look at this site and you'll see there can be some dependencies. Make sure you have them all installed.

Thanks -- i built it successfully and it launched... and has the same crash at login.

Further searches suggest that Stremio seems to not like nouveau graphic drivers. However, I can't install nvidia drivers for my GF320M on a 2010 macbook air, as there is a conflict with Cinnamon which just gives me a black screen on boot.

Just looks like this is one thing I am going to have to live without on Linux.

Thanks anyway... much appeciated.

I had a dialog with Stremio helpdesk about this...

"That looks like issue with graphic drivers. Stremio will work only with official nvidia drivers."

There it is from them -- so I'm stuck with Nvidia GF320M drivers not working with Cinnamon, so if I want LMDE to work on a macbook air 2010 I have to use Nouveau drivers and miss out on Stremio.

I can use VLC-bittorrent and Popcorntime, both of which work with Chromecast.

Thanks for helping me with this.

Sorry we didn't get a better outcome JS.

You may want to consider starting a thread in the Graphics section of the forum to see if it's possible to get the Nvidia driver working with your system.
