Introduction

Installation

Download the package here: http://www.hulu.com/labs/hulu-desktop-linux

You want the one for Ubuntu, since that's a deb package. Don't worry, it will work. Once downloaded double click to install the package. Hulu desktop is now installed and should be located in the Multimedia menu. More than likely it will give you an error when you try to run it saying it can't find flash. Easy fix:

If you don't have locate installed then get it: Code: su apt-get install locate



Then you'll need to populate the databases for locate: Code: updatedb



Now find out where your flash is located: Code: locate libflashplayer.so



Mine was located at /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/libflashplayer.so So now we tell hulu desktop where to look:

Open the file ~/.huludesktop find the section that says: Code: [flash] flash_location = (null)



and change it to the location you found earlier, in my case: Code: [flash] flash_location = /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/libflashplayer.so

Use

That's it. Try starting hulu desktop again and this time it should work perfectly.
