The Easiest Way To Make Netflix Work On OpenSUSE 13,1 And OpenSUSE 12.3 Systems

Hello Linux Geeksters. In this article I will show you the easiest way to make Netflix run on your OpenSUSE 13.1 and OpenSUSE 12.3 systems.

Because Netflix does not have native support yet for Linux, we still need to perform some tweaks in order to get Netflix work on the latest OpenSUSE systems.

Follow the instructions for your system and architecture exactly, in order to get a successful installation.

How to make Netflix work on OpenSUSE 13.1:

Update the NSS library (on both 32 bit and 64 bit systems):

$ sudo zypper addrepo http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:draht/openSUSE_13.1/home:draht.repo
$ sudo zypper refresh
$ sudo zypper install mozilla-nss

Install Google Chrome Dev/Unstable (on 32 bit systems):

$ sudo zypper ar http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/i386 Google-Chrome
$ sudo zypper refresh
$ sudo zypper install google-chrome-unstable

Install Google Chrome Dev/Unstable (on 64 bit systems):

$ sudo zypper ar http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/x86_64 Google-Chrome
$ sudo zypper refresh
$ sudo zypper install google-chrome-unstable

Run the below command in your terminal, to set the proper user agent (on both 32 bit and 64 bit systems):

$ google-chrome --no-default-browser-check --user-agent="Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/38.0.2114.2 Safari/537.36" --user-data-dir=/$HOME/.config/netflix --app=http://netflix.com/

How to make Netflix work on OpenSUSE 12.3:

Update the NSS library (on both 32 bit and 64 bit systems):

$ sudo zypper addrepo http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:draht/openSUSE_12.3/home:draht.repo
$ sudo zypper refresh
$ sudo zypper install mozilla-nss

Install Google Chrome Dev/Unstable (on 32 bit systems):

$ sudo zypper ar http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/i386 Google-Chrome

$ sudo zypper install google-chrome-unstable

Run the below command in your terminal, to set the proper user agent (on both 32 bit and 64 bit systems):

$ google-chrome --no-default-browser-check --user-agent="Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/38.0.2114.2 Safari/537.36" --user-data-dir=/$HOME/.config/netflix --app=http://netflix.com/
