problem installing realplayer 10 on Ubuntu5.10


I tried to install RealPlayer 10 Gold on Ubuntu 5.10 OS. I used the starter's guide for help. After downloading the file and making it executable, i gave the following command:

sudo ./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin

it showed the error message

./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

i searched google for help and i followed this link
http://www.joewein.de/sw/swnotes002.htm

i entered the following command

ln -s /usr/local/lib/libstdc++.so.5 /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5

it gave the error message

ln: creating symbolic link `/usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5' to `/usr/local/lib/libstdc++.so.5': Permission denied

what is the problem? how do i solve it?

P.S. i searched the location given in the command but did not find the file in question.

please help

Ok, delete the symlink you made and check whether libtdc++-5 (or something similar) is avilable via apt or synaptic.
