How to watch Netflix in RaspEX Build 170810 based on Ubuntu 17.04

After my latest build of RaspEX (from 170810) was ready and released I stumbled over an article about How to watch Netflix on the Raspberry PiIf you use Raspbian or Raspberry Pi systems based on Raspbian you can just follow the instructions in said article to be able to watch Netflix. If you use (or want to use) RaspEX Build 170810 you’ll have to install two extra packages before you can install a special version of the Chromium Browser. Follow my instruction for RaspEX below.

INSTRUCTION
1. Download raspex-chromium-netflix.zip
2. Unzip with unzip raspex-chromium-netflix.zip
In the folder raspex-chromium-netflix you’ll find three deb-files: 56.0.2924.84-0ubuntu0.14.04.1.1011.deb, raspberrypi-bootloader-nokernel_1.20170427-1~nokernel1_armhf.deb and
libraspberrypi0_1.20170427-1~nokernel1_armhf.deb
3. cd raspex-chromium-netflix
4. Install the packages in the following order:
sudo dpkg -i raspberrypi-bootloader-nokernel_1.20170427-1~nokernel1_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i libraspberrypi0_1.20170427-1~nokernel1_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i chromium-browser_56.0.2924.84-0ubuntu0.14.04.1.1011.deb
5
. Start up Chromium and follow the instruction in the article How to watch Netflix on the Raspberry Pi Step 3 and Step 4. I.e. install a Chrome extension called “User-Agent Switcher for Chrome” and do exactly as written in Step 4. I.e. create a new user-agent string like this:
New user-agent name:
Netflix

New user-agent string:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; CrOS armv7l 6946.63.0) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/47.0.2526.106 Safari/537.36

Group:
Chrome

Append?
Replace

Indicator flag:
IE

Then click the extension’s icon and select Chrome >>> Netflix.

Ready! Now you can enjoy Netflix while running RaspEX.

    Hello, Exton. I’ve tried your RaspEX and I’m having troubles with the connection. My gateway (router) is on 192.168.1.1 and I edited /etc/resolv.conf according to the image. I’m connected to my wifi (Wifcd) it states so.

    In the browser, pages don’t load and ends up giving the “Cannot locate server” error.

    Please, help.
