program invoc. prob...


Hi ,
I have recently installed realplayer and from the command line when i tried to type 'realplay' the player is not getting started but insted when i go to the directory '/usr/lib/RealPlayer8/' and then i type 'realplay', it is getting started.
My question is how to make the command 'realplay' work from anywhere on my system. Is there a place to write all these comands?

thanks,
siva

Create a link to it in /usr/bin by running the following as root:

# ln -s /usr/lib/RealPlayer8/realplay /usr/bin/realplay

That should work.
