using netflix on Fedora 20
February 13, 2014 admin

RPMs are downloaded from this link:


yum install wine-silverlight-1.7.10-2.fc20.x86_64.rpm -y
yum install netflix-desktop-0.7.0-7.fc20.noarch.rpm -y

Edit /usr/bin/netflix-desktop comment the line below and add this uncommented line:

Now run netflix-desktop and it did the trick. Remember to disable silverlight auto-updates in browser plugin properties.

Re: Using Netflix with Fedora20

Thank You very much for this fix. I had this fix install on my box with out issue. My husband's box on the other hand is a different story. I followed the instructions and ran Netflix-Desktop with no luck. I then ran netflix through the terminal to see if any error had occurred and this is the error.

$ netflix-desktop
exist cache wine
wine gecko esta en cache
wine Mono esta en cache
