Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Short: Only root can run realplayer 10. No users can. I can't figure out what's stopping it.
Long: I'm using SUSE 9.1 x86_64 and the SUSE distro has an issue with the volume control which I thought had something to do with other software programs. Bottom line I deleted the RealPlayer folder and attempted to re-install (it was working fine). I have used both the '.bin' installer and the RPM (both as root). They both appear to install the same files. If had anything to do with permissions on the real files I should have fixed it when I 'chmod 777' all the files in the directory (included sub-directories). But only root is able to open a window with realplayer running. When a root runs realplayer from the command line I get a series of warnings
(realplay.bin:7909): Gtk-WARNING **: /opt/gnome/lib64/gtk-2.0/2.2.0/engines/libqtpixmap.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
then it opens a realplayer window. As a normal user I get the same warnings but nothing happens. BTW the file does exist and all users have access. Hope someone can help. It should also be noted that I'm able to run Helix as a normal user. Thanks for your help.
