Pipelight by default

Postby Omega » 24 Dec 2013 23:49

Setting it up was simple for me, but newbies might want this by default to enjoy netflix out of the box:

What do you guys think?

I installed pipelight to have a working silverlight . I noticed that the flash available was older than the pepper flash version.
So I tried using the pipelight flash and was told by the sites I visited that the flash needed updating. - Something to watch for when using pipelight flash.

I'm only using the silver light version, and it's only for Netflix support really.

Yes this is the one I used but I'm not sure what the next Solydxk update will do. So for now I can not recommend to anyone.

I don't have netflix. So, I need the input of somebody who does ;)
Is libjack0:i386 really needed on a 64-bit system?

I tried the Pipelight method with no luck at all getting it working ... but I know that during the install libjack0 was required. (don't recall if libjack0:i386 was or not)
I'm using netflix-desktop which is the earlier method that works fine on my 64bit and didn't have to install libjack0 or libjack0:i386. Haven't experienced any problems with dist-upgrades (I removed repository entry after install to avoid problems).

If you don't have Netflix, you can test silverlight videos here.

I also had to get a user agent switcher and add this to movies.netflix.com to get it to detect Windows instead of Linux:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:25.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/25.0

If Netflix-Desktop is easier, I'm all for this method too. I noticed that the Pipelight repository also has Netflix-Desktop in there as well. I installed it, and it also works great.

From what I have read that Pipelight is 32-bit only. On my next install I will try without.

Yes, libjack0:i386 needs to be installed before pipelight gets installed, otherwise "apt-get gets confused".

http://forums.solydxk.nl/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1884

1. Import the key of the repository
2. Add the repository
3. sudo apt-get update
4. sudo apt-get install libjack0:i386 (needed on SolydK 64-bit)
5. sudo apt-get install pipelight or pipelight-multi
6. Install a user agent switcher

Can anybody verify if this works for the 64-bit versions?

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libjack0:i386
wget http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/DarkPlayer:/Pipelight/Debian_7.0/amd64/pipelight_0.2.3_amd64.deb
dpkg -i pipelight_0.2.3_amd64.deb
rm pipelight_0.2.3_amd64.deb
For the 32-bit versions:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libjack0
wget http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/DarkPlayer:/Pipelight/Debian_7.0/i386/pipelight_0.2.3_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i pipelight_0.2.3_i386.deb
rm pipelight_0.2.3_i386.deb

dpkg -i pipelight_0.2.3_amd64.deb
rm pipelight_0.2.3_amd64.deb
I prefer GDebi to dpkg -i and using that I got a dependency error. The package pipelight appears to be a meta package that depends on pipelight-multi, so I don't think this sequence will lead to anything useful.

Other than that, when I tried to install libjack0:i386, apt wanted to remove packages I do not want removed:

Code: Select all

De volgende pakketten zullen VERWIJDERD worden:
  exaile gstreamer0.10-plugins-good gstreamer1.0-plugins-good
  libasound2-plugins libfarstream-0.1-0 libjack-jackd2-0 libpurple-bin
  libpurple0 pidgin pulseaudio pulseaudio-module-x11 radiotray
So I didn't continue. That's on an up to date 64-bit SolydX, by the way.

Thanks Grizzler, that's exactly what I needed to know.
As long as the installation of pipelight cannot be done cleanly. I will not risk adding those packages to our repositories or add to our ISO's.

For some reason, it never promted me to remove any of those files. I still see them installed on my system.

I'm not sure if it's because I also used this command as the fist step:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

In any case, the Netflix-Desktop method seems to be the best way to deal with not having to install 32 bit libraries and still have Netflix out of the box.

You don't have to do that more than once. I did it on my system long ago.

Code: Select all

p07@asus:~$ dpkg --print-foreign-architectures
i386
The installed libjack version apt wanted to remove appears to be incompatible with the other one. I'm sure there's a way to install and remove things so the end result is correct. However, the sequence presented doesn't get you there on every system.

There has to be a logic and reasoning why it prompted you to remove packages on your system and not mine. It's beyond my knowlege at this point though.

FYI: SolydXK's 64-bit systems are multiarch by default.

I installed pipelight, about six weeks ago, and if I remember correctly I was NOT promted to remove any packages when running "sudo apt-get install libjack0:i386".

What I do remember was that I first I tried to skip the "manual install" of libjack0:i386 and then when running "sudo apt-get install pipelight", I was promted to remove a few hundred packages and install a few hundred, so i aborted and installed libjack0:i386 first.

By comparing the list provided by grizzler, my system looks like this

Installed packaged
gstreamer0.10-plugins-good
gstreamer1.0-plugins-good
libasound2-plugins
pulseaudio
pulseaudio-module-x11

NOT installed
exaile
libfarstream-0.1-0
libjack-jackd2-0
libpurple-bin
radiotray
libpurple0
pidgin

Edit: when testing to install libjack-jackd2-0 in synaptics, it wants to remove libjack0:i386, maybe this could be the cause of the issues
