Install Silverlight on Ubuntu 14.04

· 1 min read

Ok, sometimes you can't go around a Microsoft product because a crappy
site is written in Silverlight and you can't go without it.
These steps install a modified version of Wine and configure it so that
the site which I needed.
Software called Magister used on a School website to monitor childrens
progress worked oke for me on Ubuntu 14.04

  $ sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
  $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pipelight/stable
  $ sudo apt-get update
  $ sudo apt-get install pipelight
  $ sudo pipelight-plugin --update
For system wide setting:
  $ sudo pipelight-plugin --enable silverlight
For current user only:
  $ pipelight-plugin --enable silverlight

Please note that only Firefox browser will work, since Chrome version
>34 doesn't support the NSAPI anymore which this plugin uses.
