Following the instructions on the pipelight installation page, I installed pipelight on Ubuntu 14.04. However, upon opening firefox the
.wine-pipelight folder isn't present in my home folder, and I get the following errors:
[PIPELIGHT:LIN:unknown] attached to process. [PIPELIGHT:LIN:unknown] checking environment variable PIPELIGHT_SILVERLIGHT5_1_CONFIG. [PIPELIGHT:LIN:unknown] searching for config file pipelight-silverlight5.1. [PIPELIGHT:LIN:unknown] trying to load config file from '/home/alden/.config/pipelight-silverlight5.1'.

I've reinstalled quite a few times and ran through many of the common fixes offered on the pipelight Launchpad pages and here on AskUbunta and still it fails to run.
Is there a reason why this folder isn't present, or why I'm getting these errors?
Edit: Oddly enough, the
.wine-pipelight folder is created wtih I open Nitro, although this still doesn't fix the issue.
Edit II: The Pipelight Diagnostic Tool tells me there are three things wrong. It says I fail the Silverlight check (meaning websites will think I don't have Silverlight installed), the dllPath/dllname check (which I've checked to make sure leads to a valid file), and the attempt to load /etc/issue (which is definitely present).
Here's a picture of the errors:
And I've uploaded my config file (
/usr/share/pipelight/configs/pipelight-silverlight5.1) which should be default: http://pastebin.com/PZa2YB1w
