Having trouble getting netflix to work with lubuntu.  I have tried a few methods I found on a google search.  Any suggestions?

The reason is Microsoft Silverlight - they purposely don't want it to work on Linux. But what works is a "special" version of WINE just for Netflix called Netflix-Desktop. Follow the directions on their website Works pretty flawlessly on Lubuntu 14.04 - I have it, but we usually watch it on my wife's laptop. Been using it about a year now I think we started on 13.04, but definitely on 13.10

Have fun!
