You are Welcome! The Tutorial shows you Step-by-Step How to Install the Silverlight Firefox and Opera Web Browser Support by the Pipelight Package for CentOS 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:

  • Connects the Windows DLL with the Linux process
  • Translates between platform dependent differences on the NPAPI
  • Uses a Patched Wine version

Pipelight needs to start Wine to execute the pluginloader. This May Slow down the Start of your Browser.
