    Here's your problem. Silverlight is Microsoft software, and Moonlight support was dropped AFIK. So, to add Silverlight into Chrome would be difficult while running Ubuntu. – esnowrackley Nov 23 '12 at 14:32

    So, I can't add Moonlight plugin to Chrome? I have read tons of people out there having added it successfully, but as I said, I can't follow theirs steps :( – user58366 Nov 23 '12 at 14:36
  • Wait, what do you need silverlight for? There may be a workaround for a specific item. – esnowrackley Nov 23 '12 at 16:17
  • And, again, after looking, it would appear the after Natty, moonlight kind of died. go-mono.com/moonlight - Seems to have something that may work. – esnowrackley Nov 23 '12 at 16:20

I recommend installing Piperlight. In my ubuntu 13.10 and folowing the steps here http://www.webupd8.org/2013/08/pipelight-use-silverlight-in-your-linux.html it works smoth


You can't install Silverlight on Linux because that would make Bill cry.

Instead, install Wine, install a browser in Wine, then install Silverlight in the browser.

  • I know that path, I just wanted know if were possible without abandon the Chrome that I usually use on my Ubuntu box, in fact, seem to me that for some time was possible, but at least when I try months ago, not work cos Moonlight is kind of unsupported now. – user58366 Aug 23 '13 at 19:54
