Also I checked the wine browser folder, it was empty, I deleted it anyway. There is a folder in home called wine-pipelight but I think I need that one, or do I?

As Hal said " Dave my mind is going, I can feel it. Dave would you like me to sing you a song"

Did you install ms-truecorefonts? Accept the EULA twice? Did you try the pipelight diagnostic again? You can delete the .wine-pipelight directory, it will be re-created when you open the browser.

So this is what happens. I try to open netflix, I get this


MS true type fonts are not properly installed, would you like to download and install them now? (requires an Internet connection and sudo permissions). I click yes. Which brings up this screen.

It appears that you still have not installed the MS true type fonts. You need to accept the license agreement and install these fonts for Netflix Desktop to work properly.
