I'm trying to install the netflix-desktop package in Debian 'jessie'. I was able to get this to work on my laptop running Debian 'wheezy' a few months ago, but on my desktop I keep running into these errors when I run:

aptitude install netflix-desktop

I already added the i386 architecture and tried running apt-get install -f and aptitude install -f to try and fix any broken packages. It's worth noting that it's not just the 'netflix-desktop' package that does this: other packages (which are also 'netflix-desktop' dependencies) like 'ia32-libs' give similar messages about broken dependencies.

So I'm a little stumped. If anybody has any ideas I'd greatly appreciate it.


did you add ppa ? You will have to add PPA (Personal Packages Archives) in order to install Netflix on Linux.

$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ehoover/compholio
