Adding NETFLIX support to Debian Wheezy

Post  kd5ob on Thu May 23, 2013 1:16 pm

You can now install NETFLIX to Debian Wheezy and not have to use sudo to do it.

AS ROOT, do this...

apt-add-repository ppa:ehoover/compholio

nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ehoover-compholio-wheezy.list

Using nano, change the two lines to match this.
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ehoover/compholio/ubuntu quantal main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/ehoover/compholio/ubuntu quantal main

Then save this file.

next.

apt-get update

apt-get install netflix-desktop

apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

echo ttf-mscorefonts-installer msttcorefonts/accepted-mscorefonts-eula select true | sudo debconf-set-selections

netflix-desktop

This last line will finish but you might have to control C to get it unlocked when it's done.

NEXT, login as yourself, a normal user and run.

netflix-desktop

and again, this might lock up at the end and you might have to control C to get out of it.
But when your finished, you will have a Netflix icon in the applications menu and it will RUN!!!

For those of you who do run SUDO

If you run SUDO in Debian Wheezy anyway, here is the instructions for installing NETFLIX doing it that way.

Netflix has some pretty good internet T.V. for about $8 a month.
And it's available in America and Great Britain but not everywhere.
I'm nut totally sure if it's available in Australia?? Maybe.

But, SOON, via HTML5 DRM and Google Chrome browser, they will be offering Netflix that way
to EVERYONE who can run Google Chrome.

Anyway, I'm sorry if I bothered you with it if you can't get it in Australia.
I think the fucking DCMA is a pile of fucking bullshit. You should be able to watch anyones T.V. anywhere in the world,,, I SAY...
