well, as far as I'm aware, you often don't automatically get a menu icon etc. If the install was OK (permissions etc for user and root), then you should be able to start it from command line as user by issuing the command
Code:
realplay
and if that starts it ok, then you can either make the menu entry yourself or make a desktop icon (if you use kde, you just right click and make a link to application, click the icon and it should show you available icons to choose, the in the commands tab, call the icon real player and in the actual command box enter "realplay" (without the quotes), followed by OK, so that when you click the icon it should just start in the same way as it did for command line input).

regards

John
