    Linux Firefox and realplayer8


    Applications:
    FireFox 1.0.4 for Linux i686
    Realplayer8

    Linux Version:
    SuSe Professional 9.0


    i currently got Firefox installed, and when i go to watch some media footage on the net, it says i need realplayer, quicktime, or microjunk. i do have realplayer installed.

    I am wondering how do i get realplayer8 latched onto firefox <or vise versa> to were firefox will detect realplayer.

    Also wondering, dose anyone elses keyboard just up and die while using firefox? I can type in a URL and that would be it, only key that works on the hole keyboard is the backspace key, eather a bad download, or someone messed up in the coding.......

    anyone abloe to give me a hand here?

    Thx!

    Try following the instructions found at the mozilla plugindoc page. Specifically

    ""Make sure a symbolic link to the realplay script is in your PATH.""

    i currently have it installed in /home/user

    and is there an uninstall proggy in linux so i can remove realplayer8?

    dont bother installing realplayer, instead install mplayerplug-in which embeds the mplayer media player in firefox. it will play all files like realplayer/mov/mpeg whatever.
