In a terminal type
Code:
whereis mercury
Quote:
cannabis:/home/repo/download# whereis mercury
mercury: /usr/bin/mercury /usr/share/mercury
cannabis:/home/repo/download#
You need to create the entry in the menu yourself.
idem for RealPlayer11GOLD

You need to install java

Use the packet manager to do so
Take a look at
