Check in your "RealPlayer" directory under your $HOME... It may be that the icon is a bad link.

try typing "realplay" from a terminal and it should open or display any errors.

AFAIK you should uninstall Helix player before you install real player because it interferes with real player

Uninistall helix player using:

rpm -e HelixPlayer
reinstall real player or run your *.bin file
