The Linux Tutorial Shows You Step-by-Step How-to Install the Silverlight Support for Firefox and Opera Browsers by the Pipelight Package on Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.X/7.X i686/x8664 Gnome/KDE GNU/Linux.

Pipelight allows one to run Windows browser plugins in the context of Linux browsers.

Especially relevant: Pipelight has been Discontinued and is Not Working in PPAPI Browsers with the best Security features.

To Achieve this Pipelight do:
