Run Netflix on Ubuntu in seconds

Since Microsoft Silverlight isn’t available on Linux, so Netlix hasn’t been either. Now there’s an unofficial desktop package available. You simply add the repository, run updates, and download and install the ‘netflix-desktop’ package. The package bundles WINE and Netflix, and makes the process really easy.


Three simple commands

Three simple commands in the terminal window:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ehoover/compholio
sudo apt-get update
