I get an error message when opening netflix saying must have ms true fonts installed. When in terminal it appears they are already there. now netflix won't even open. Can some one help.
I am running lubuntu 12.04 on ibm t42.
I'm sorry, that answer was unclear. I'm using wine. I downloaded ehoovers ppa. That got nexflix working but with buffering problems.
I just did an update that included a wine update. After that I got an error message telling me to install ms true fonts only I can't figure out how to do that. I'm not even sure thats the problem. Any ideas?
OK I reinstalled netflix and tryed to install ms fonts in terminal get this sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer latist vertion but when I try to open netflix it still is asking for ms true fonts.
The information at Hoovers site below might explain that in the second paragraph. Using wine-pipelight handles the MS fonts during the installation. I've got Netflix on Ubuntu 12.04 working using wine-pipelight. There are several links on that page which explain how to install for different distributions.
ok thanks john, I used nano and got this not sure what to do now.

The page below has a little more detail. Near the bottom there is an explanation on additional add-on requirement for firefox, to use User Agent Overrider or User Agent Switcher. The User Agent Overrider seems to work better, your choice.
