    Hi everyone,

    I installed this distro today and can't seem to find a way to install Stremio... Downloading the linux file on their site, I'm left with a .tar.gz file which I extracted. From there I don't know what to do as there is no .deb file or anyting. I've been trying to find answers on the internet for a few hours now and all I've learned is that I have to run the Stremio.sh file but all the tutorials I've come across are made for ubuntu. When right-clicking on the .sh file and running it nothing happens.
    While trying to follow one of these tutorials I ended up creating an opt directory with the Stremio file in there and now I can't even delete that as I don't have the permissions...
    I would really appreciate any help :)
    Also I'm open to suggestions if you have a better alternative to Stremio.
    Thanks in advance

    Nicolas

    I just tried again: re-downloaded in case of corrupted file, extracted it and then left-click run on the .sh file. Waited but nothing happens. It's not even as if my Laptop has poor specs quite the contrary.. Isn't there any way to properly install it?

    Here's what I get. I don't know what that pantheon filechooser module is. It says app already running? because there is no Stremio window open that's for sure.
    Thanks for helping :)


    Code (Text):

    the 'Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "pantheon-filechooser-module"' is not the problem.
    Did you install the third party software, because it seems it didn't find

    If you want it to work? Yes! :D
    It's propriety libraries, when you install eOS you get the chance to check the box for third party libs.

    Code (Text):

    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
