Netflix on Linux to

Installing Netflix Desktop

Not only have the developers done the work of tweaking all this software and putting it into an easy-to-use package, they’ve also provided a PPA that allows you to easily install the Netflix Desktop package on Mint.
To install it, open a Terminal window (search for Terminal in the dash and press Enter) and run the following commands:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ehoover/compholio
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install netflix-desktop
After it’s installed, you’ll find the Netflix Desktop package in your dash. Search for Netflix to find the app.

If you get the MS fonts are not installed error on startup of the Netflix Desktop do this:

Open a terminal and run this command:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall ttf-mscorefonts-installer
Don't leave the terminal unattended while this operation proceeds. After a few minutes you will be presented with the Microsoft EULA which you must agree to otherwise the installation fails. Press the TAB key to highlight OK, and then press ENTER. Once the installation has finished, check Netflix again.
