Go here: Real Player Download. Download for GNU/Linux. Save it to your desktop so it is easier to find.

Open a terminal and type: cd Desktop then press enter.

Now type:
chmod +x RealPlayer11GOLD.bin
Switch to root and type:
to start the install process.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

What Linux distribution are you using? Can you add that to your profile because it helps other members give you answers that are accurate and relevant to your distribution.
