Netflix Desktop installation Guide
Disclaimer: This guide has not been tested since I am residing in a country that is not permitted to the Netflix service. It also uses 3rd party repositories of which you , the administrator of your system, will have to trust yourself.
Credit: The netflix-desktop package is provided courtesy of DarkPlayer via the OpenSuse build service.
Instructions to install netflix-desktop:
1.) Login as root in the terminal (F12 for Yakuake, otherwise run Konsole), use the comand "su -" to login as root (providing root password).
2.) Add the repository key to your trusted keyring:
# wget https://www.download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/DarkPlayer:\ /Pipelight/Debian_7.0/Release.key
# apt-key add Release.key
# echo "deb https://www.download.opensuse.org/repositories/home\
# apt-get update
3.) Install the netflix-desktop package:
# apt-get install netflix-desktop
4.) Answer yes to the prompt, it will install a list of other packages (dependencies) as well.
OK, that should be it installed. You will see an icon for Netflix Desktop in the Multimedia category of your start menu.
Note: It can take a long time on first start up, just wait. If it doesn't start or you have problems when wine installs wine-mono and wine-gecko, delete the .wine-browser directory in your home folder and try again:
$ cd ~ $ rm -rf .wine-browser
