Silverlight

Post by Alan Reynolds »

Would someone explain in simple terms how I can get MS Silverlight to run on Linux 17

I have recently installed Linux Mint 17.3 64 bit and have tried multiple combinations of pipelight and Wine-silverlight installer but without success.
I know Silverlight is out of date but my company insists on its use.

Do I need to install Wine or will pipelight enable silverlight alone?

Also your company needs to recognize, that Silverlight is a dead horse. Not even the new MS browser Edge is supported.

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pipelight/stable
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y install pipelight-multi
pipelight-plugin --system-check
rm ~/.mozilla/firefox/*/pluginreg.dat
pipelight-plugin --create-mozilla-plugins
If Pipelight does not work, simply remove pluginreg.dat file.

Code: Select all

rm ~/.mozilla/firefox/*/pluginreg.dat
