Silverlight running on chromium

Hi, how do you get Silverlight running on Mint 17. I'm preparing for my
measureup test and it says I need silverlight installed. How do i go about
setting this up.

Silverlight is proprietary microsoft software which doesn't run on Linux. Also, microsoft is phasing it out. You could try installing and using wine-pipelight or you might be able to use the google-chrome web browser. The wine-pipelight installation instructions for Ubuntu/Mint are at the site below. I'd try google-chrome first to see if that works.

Some info on using it wine-pipelight with chromium.

I just happened to notice this while reading this review of Mint 17.1 Mate. It describes how to get Pipelight and the plugin. I'm not really familiar with this, but you might want to take a look for another source:
Scroll down to the "repositories" section.
