Installation - Debian

Please note that we don't offer any packages for older versions of Debian, for example Debian Squeeze. If you're still using such a version, you can either upgrade to a more recent version, or alternatively compile Pipelight yourself.

On 64 bit systems you first need to enable the installation of i386 packages as you will need the 32 bit part of Wine to run these brower plugins and their installers. Execute the following commands via sudo (if installed) or as root:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386


Now you need to import the key of the repository so that apt-get won't show up any warnings:

wget http://repos.fds-team.de/Release.key


You will need to add the contrib repository of Debian, if you do not have it enabled already, as Silverlight requires some Microsoft fonts to work properly. Open /etc/apt/sources.list and append contrib at the end of each line that begins with deb or deb-src and which is a default debian repository. For example:

# Original line: deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main contrib


After this step you can include our repository by adding the following repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list file.

 Wheezy: deb http://repos.fds-team.de/stable/debian/ wheezy main  Jessie: deb http://repos.fds-team.de/stable/debian/ jessie main  Stretch: deb http://repos.fds-team.de/stable/debian/ stretch main  Sid: deb http://repos.fds-team.de/stable/debian/ sid main 

Update your package cache by executing:

apt-get update


You can now install pipelight-multi as any regular package. We recommend to update the plugin database after the installation:

apt-get install pipelight-multi
pipelight-plugin --update


The next step is to enable the plugins you want to use.
