Jump to: navigation, search

WARNING: The moon plugin isn't fully functional yet. Not all pages with Silverlight will work correctly and some will force Firefox to die. Still looks pretty though.

Moonlight is a open source implementation of Microsoft's Silverlight runtime. It is currently in testing and shall hopefully be released later in the year. Moonlight currently still needs the mono and olive packages built from svn to create a working plugin.

Installing Moonlight

Moonlight needs to be built from AUR, this will either mean downloading each of the packages separately or downloading and installing a program such as yaourt which can get them for you.

Manual Install

The four packages needed are mono-svn, monodocer-svn, olive-svn and moon-svn.


The install procedure for all four packages is the same, untar the tarball, then as root run

makepkg -i

from within the newly created folder.


Follow the above procedure for downloading yaourt and then download moon with

#yaourt mono-svn monodocer-svn olive-svn moon-svn
