Thanks.

First check whether you have installed it correctly. If you installed it using rpm, then you can check it using,

rpm -q realplayer.

Now, if you have installed it, just type realplayer in a shell. I don't know the correct name of the executable, but it must be realplayer. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

Then , right click on the desktop and select an link to application. In the execution tab, type realplayer, and you are set to go...

Could you provide your disto and window manager? This will allow me to tell you how to increase your volume using a gui interface...

The system volume control can be provided by an applet on the panel by right clicking on the panel and going to 'Add to Panel' -> 'Multimedia' -> 'Volume Control'.

Otherwise it can be launched as a seperate application from the applications menu, 'Applications' -> 'Sound & Video' -> 'Volume Control'.

These controls will provide control over the systems volume and not Real's. Reals max volume can only go as high as what you have the system volume set at... Does that make sense?

As for a shortcut on the desktop; you can right click on the desktop and add a 'New Launcher'. Fill in the field and there you go...
