I have installed moonlight from this post here: https://askubuntu.com/a/327862/188878

the problem is, the application/website I am trying to use "requires" silverlight 5. is there anyway to trick the website into thinking I have silverlight 5 so that I can at least try it out and see if it works. the website is www.dayforcehcm.com and its so that I can do my scheduling at work. If this doesnt work, its a near deal breaker for me and ubuntu..

or is there any other sources of a silverlight alternative/way I could access this website?

thanks.

EDIT: had to remove some code because post became too long. the following code is from pipelight installed on firefox 23 running on ubuntu 13.04

checking the terminal output shows lots of errors, so perhaps this site actually is incompatible:

I tried wine today, installed firefox 23, silverlight 5. Visited the website and seemed to get the same errors that pipelight got.. perhaps this is something that is wines fault then?

EDIT:

Just wanted to update to say that I tried this again with the newest release of wine, winetricks, wine-gecko, and wine-mono installed and it worked flawlessly. no caltype errors, no useragent spoofing required. Had to create a 32 bit wine prefix, and installed dotnet45 using winetricks. Visited websites using firefox. for reference, this was wine 1.735, winetricks 20141130, wine_gecko 2.34, wine-mono 4.5.4. I can confirm that this now works on Ubuntu 14.04 and an up to date Arch build.

  • An update -- I have been able to get the combination of wine, firefox, dotnet45 (via winetricks), and silverlight 5 to work successfully.

Using Pipelight

My answer is credits Webupd8: http://www.webupd8.org/2013/08/pipelight-use-silverlight-in-your-linux.html

You can use Pipelight to provide you with Silverlight support.

To install it:#

Make sure to close your browser first, if not you will need to run an extra command.

From the terminal:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ehoover/compholio
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mqchael/pipelight
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pipelight

From the GUI:

  • Add the repositories to your software sources:

    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ehoover/compholio sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mqchael/pipelight

After refreshing your sources, install pipelight Install pipelight If this icon doesn't work simply search for it in the Software Center.

If you kept the browser open, run:

rm -rf ~/.wine-pipelight/

Next step, make sites that block Linux work:

Use one of these two addons (F:

Or this one (Chrome):

If you get slow playback, see:


Alternative solutions:

Using a Windows browser on top of Wine.

You can probably use Silverlight 5 on top of a Windows Browser using Wine. I have not tested this option but it is pretty reasonable and straight forward.

  • Install wine Install wine
  • Download and install your browser.
  • Download and install Silverlight for Windows as you normally would do on Windows.
  • Live long and prosper.

Using Windows in a Virtual Machine.

If you don't want to give up Linux, but can't get anything else to work, this is the best bet. You need a valid copy of Windows however as I won't give steps for pirating.

  • Install virtualbox Install virtualbox
  • VMWare Player is an option as well, as well as Qemu, etc; but I highly recommend Virtual Box.
  • Download and install the Virtual Box extensions (optional).
  • Using a valid Copy of Windows, create a new Virtual Machine in Virtual Box.
  • Install your browser of choice (if necessary) or use Internet Explorer.
  • Install Silverlight.
  • Enjoy your coffee or beverage of choice (absolutely necessary step!). Skipping this step will result in the process not being as rewarding as intended.

  • thanks for the awesome reply, I followed your steps but am unable to see the addon in firefox, even after removing the config directory.. I'm not sure whats gone wrong, all of the packages are installed EDIT: found it in plugins. it currently says pipelight error! check the terminal output, so im going to investigate.

  • starting firefox from the terminal doesnt prove helpful either. The first time I started firefox I seemed to get a brief wine error window popup, but it doesnt seem to happen again. A sudo apt-get purge pipelight && sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get install pipelight doesnt seem to change things. Also, I am running firefox 23

  • ok i seemed to have fixed things sort of. see the first post
    – Paul
    Sep 6, 2013 at 15:20
  • @Paul Pipelight is not a Firefox addon, but rather a plugin. Make sure that you have the plugin enabled in your Firefox plugins.

CLOSE FIREFOX BEFORE THIS INSTALATION OR YOU WILL EXPERIENCE PROBLEMS

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:pipelight/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends pipelight-multi
sudo pipelight-plugin --update

The following commands install system wide. To install to the user only do not use sudo.

To enable silverlight system wide

sudo pipelight-plugin --enable silverlight

for the windows version of adobe flash system wide

sudo pipelight-plugin --enable flash

for widevine systemwide

sudo pipelight-plugin --enable widevine

And there's even a Unity3D plugin

sudo pipelight-plugin --enable unity3d 

This does not work for google-chrome or chromium, only firefox.

    @Creator if it works and there are no issues, I wouldn't touch it for now. In the past, i've had both installed and didn't have any issues. The funny thing is that I believe the ppa from that article doesn't supply the pipelight package as that is now provided through apt-get and pipelight-multi is from the ppa but like I said, you may get a warning about having more than one pipelight installed but if it's working fine it shouldn't need to be fixed.

I followed the steps, but my Ubuntu 14.04 would not want to do the install pipelight. I then switched the /etc/ubuntu/source.list to use us.archive.ubuntu.com and after that all went smooth. Maybe it helps someone else to avoid a lot of headaches.. See this question on Ask Ubuntu for further reference.
