Help with Silverlight, please.
« on: March 07, 2012, 08:08:24 am »

What is the Vector Linux equivalent of the "Silverlight" viewer (I have sometimes come across internet websites that say I need to install it)?

The implementation of MS Silverlight for Linux is Moonlight.

http://www.mono-project.com/Moonlight

But i'm not sure if there is a moonlight package in the repositories.

Yes I did.. Now, what is the Linux equivalent of Microsoft Media Playback (apparently there are some videos for Moonlight that require that as well)?

I just tried to install it, and I come to find out that it isn't compatible with the browser that I'm using (Firefox 10.0.2) :(.
