Ubuntu: Pipelight not working with firefox or chrome


I installed pipelight by following the instructions on the website but it still does not work properly .

Kernel version 3.8.0-27-generic

When launching chrome the logs show up as . Can someone tell me what is wrong with my setup ?

Your logs looks similar to my. The difference is that I received more info at the end:

err:module:import_dll Loading library libgcc_s_sjlj-1.dll (which is needed by L"Z:\usr\share\pipelight\pluginloader.exe") failed (error c000007b).  err:module:import_dll Library libstdc++-6.dll (which is needed by L"Z:\usr\share\pipelight\pluginloader.exe") not found  err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"Z:\usr\share\pipelight\pluginloader.exe" failed, status c0000135  [PIPELIGHT] Error during the initialization of the wine process - aborting  

If you have similar problem, you can solve it by linking missing dll's in wine-pipelight installation:

ln -s <path-to-your-crosscompiler-gcc-libs>/*.dll ~/.wine-pipelight/drive_c/windows/system32/  

In my case (gentoo linux) needed libs are located in /usr/lib64/gcc/i686-w64-mingw32/4.7.3/. If you don't know where to find dll's you can use:

locate libstdc++-6.dll.  


the instructions you used are a bit incomplete, as one important step is missing. The installation of Pipelight itself looks okay so far, but you probably don't have installed a user agent switcher. This is required to make the (streaming) pages think that you're using a Windows PC, otherwise they will refuse access or hang at 100% loading.

The following FAQ entry describes how to do this for Chrome/Firefox/Uzbl: https://answers.launchpad.net/pipelight/+faq/2351
