Maxdome ceased working under Ubuntu Tasty (firefox 39.0)

Asked by jetrca on 2015-08-01


I described my problem under

Maxdome used to work o.k. on my system until a couple of day ago. Then videos did not start anymore. Instead I get a screen stating:

Installation von Silverlight erforderlich

Bevor Du Videos abspielen kannst,
musst Du das kostenlose Silverlight Plugin installieren.

As you can see in the thread there, there is at least one other user with this problem.

- I reinitialized pipelight with rm -rf ~/.wine-pipelight/
- I updated the plugins with sudo pipelight-plugin --update
- I restarted the plugin with sudo pipelight-plugin --enable silverlight
- I tried all kernels htat are currently installed on my system

Nothing helped so far.

Thank you in advance for help to return to my unworried life as a couch potato ;)

You most probably run into which broke Wine and a lot of other applications. Make sure that you got the fixed kernel 3.13.0-61 and run "sudo pipelight-plugin --create-mozilla-plugins". The plugins should show up again after a restart of firefox.
