- How can I use Netflix on Ubuntu? 8 answers
So I have got Ubuntu 12.04 on a system 76 lemur ultra laptop.
I installed netflix via terminal with the following chain of commands:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ehoover/compholio sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install netflix-desktop
when it was finished installing, I clicked the icon and something came up asking if you want to install some dependent software, but wouldn't let me interact with the window - so I hit tab and worked my way through that. But my computer shutdown before I could fully install GECKO.
Now I have the netflix icon, but when i click it or right click it nothing happens. I had tried uninstalling it with the following commands,
sudo apt-add --purge remove netflix-desktop
and then reinstalling it but there's no change.
does anyone know what I can do to get netflix to run from here? or what I can do to start troubleshooting? I searched around on AskUbuntu but couldn't find any answers to this specific problem.
