please can you confirm where you have downloaded moonlight - and which version (add this to your question). Also, which websites are not working (add the links)? – fossfreedom Aug 12 '11 at 14:57

This should do the trick, but it's not a 100% with all silverlight implementations

  1. sudo apt-get update
  2. sudo apt-get upgrade
  3. sudo apt-get install libmoon moonlight-plugin-mozilla moonlight-plugin-core

Wow! Thank you. I had never even considered looking in the repos, for some reason. I think perhaps because of the way Firefox reacts when it isn't present. Great tip! – Jo-Erlend Schinstad Aug 12 '11 at 13:29
i already had that stuff installed and up to date. – scratch Aug 12 '11 at 14:23
therefore nothing changed. – scratch Aug 12 '11 at 14:24
