You need to take the plugin (rpnp.so if my memory is correct)
and install it in the plugins directory of your browser.
Also RealPlayer10 is now available for Linux you can get it here:

http://www.real.com/linux/

I recently upgraded from 8 to 10 and like it much better.

No look in the real play directory for a file named rpnp.so, then either copy it or create a synbolic link to the plug ins directory of your browser. What this will do is allow the browser to call realplayer when needed.

Hi Haroon,

su
find / -name "rpnp.so"

got it? no? Then, RP is not properly installed, re-install it. BTW: I would prefer the symlink method, not the copy - if you update the file, you do not have to remember to copy it again.

HTH, Peter

Ok it should be in /usr/local
just enter /usr/local/RealPlayer/realplay and that should bring it up (note the upper case r and p on the directory name !) if that doesn't do it just use the search command to find out where it is.




Note upgrading to RP10 does not delete RP8. Youll have to do that manually

Perfect. Enter /usr/local/RealPlayer/realplay from an x console. This should bring up the player. You should be able to configure it from there. I f you still have problems post again and I'll walk you through it.
