Netflix for Linux!!!

Original post: http://www.iheartubuntu.com/2012/11/ppa-for-netflix-desktop-app.html



So I just found out that you can get Netflix on Linux.  It is only for Ubuntu right now, But I got it working on LinuxMint Debian (Cinnamon 64bit) and here is how:

Instructions for LinuxMint Debian (Cinnamon 64bit):

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys 1F691896 
sudo apt-add-repository "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ehoover/compholio/ubuntu oneiric main"
sudo apt-add-repository "deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/ehoover/compholio/ubuntu oneiric main"
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install netflix-desktop libwine-gecko-1.4 mono-complete
sudo sh -c "echo ttf-mscorefonts-installer msttcorefonts/accepted-mscorefonts-eula select true | debconf-set-selections"

sudo netflix-desktop


Choose 'yes' on the pop-up windows for it to download and install everything for you.

ENJOY!
