ubuntu Mint 14 and Netflix
 
I just installed Netflix PPA by Erich Hoover on Ubuntu 12.04 OS and it runs very good. Can the same Netflix PPA be installed and run on Mint 14 OS? Thanks for your reply.

snowpine 03-04-2013 02:45 PM

Yes, and the install steps are identical, except Mint 14 requires the PPA for Quantal.

fitlnx 03-04-2013 08:06 PM

what is Quandal and where do I find it to use in Mint installing? Thanks

snowpine 03-04-2013 08:21 PM

Quantal Quetzal is the code name for Ubuntu 12.10. Mint 14 is based on Ubuntu 12.10.

Here are instructions to install netflix-desktop on Ubuntu/Mint: http://www.iheartubuntu.com/2012/11/...sktop-app.html

Hello Snowpine. Just wanted to let you know the result of running netflix install on my Mint 14. Here is the outputs after running the netflix codes, like I did on Ubuntu netbook:


after running the third code line, this is what is displayed
on the terminal output screen: (The system stops and there is no clickable area to cause the system to continue or box to enter agreed. The last line <OK> with out a continue or clickable command to continue.)

System would not continue after the above. I waited a considerable time for it to output more screen info, but it never did and I could not continue. I tried to exist but it said processing data do you want to close, so I waited somemore(over 10 minutes before I quit. I did not see any errors what so ever. I tried running this 3/4 times with same results. Thanks for your attention. Will await your reply.

To accept the Microsoft EULA, press TAB until the "OK" button is highlighted, then press Enter.

fitlnx 03-07-2013 08:49 PM

Snowpine,

I never would of figure out to use the 'tab' button.
By the way is there a difference in using 'y' vs 'Y' or is the result the same (as relates to install commands? I have enter low case when requested, but it does show the upper case for response. I notice running the last command line when installing netflix on Mint, takes quite a bit longer than on Ubuntu. It sure would help also if the 'Mono' Id for ubuntu and Mint were properly spelled out/described, since there are a heck of a lot of them in the softw. Mgr. listening. I used the Runtime One (which I found was already loaded under Mint. Ok, Netflix is working now with Mint and seems to perform well. Thanks for your help/reply. All has been resolve on this post.

Thank you,

This message usually means you have another package-management application open, such as: Software Center, Update Manager, etc.

Close all package-management applications and then try your command again.
