wedge maybe you could use the --force argument when installing it if you are positive that the file is there.. and if it does't work you can always erase the package and go back to trying to figure it out...
and shantesh try to refrain from hijacking threads, while in turn you should have just made your own thread....anways to answer your question never type the full file name just type the name of the program for example ::
apt-get install realplayer

It would be helpful if you would include what distro you are using. I found this progam which may be what you need. The is part of this program. I would delete the file you put in /usr/lib before installing this rpm.


If you aren't using Redhat, just do a Google search for your distro tk-8.3.3
