Enabling Silverlight Support on Mint Linux
Hello Mint User! The Tutorial Shows You Step-by-Step How to Install the Silverlight Firefox and Opera Browser Support by the Pipelight Package for Linux Mint 18.1 Serena LTS i386/amd64 Mate/Cinnamon/KDE/Xfce GNU+Linux Desktop.
Especially relevant: Pipelight has been Discontinued and is Not Working in PPAPI Browsers with the best Security features.
Pipelight allows one to run Windows browser plugins in the context of Linux browsers.
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.
Open a Shell Terminal emulator window
