    RealPlayer Plugin


    I have the Realplayer 8 for Linux installed, but am trying to copy the version 9 codecs and plugins over to the user/lib/realplayer8, and gave me an access denied message.

    How do I gain access to all my folders?

    You shouldn't have access to all directories; that's why you run as a user instead of root. When you want to do things that require root access, use su to switch temporarily.

    However, don't use Realplayer if you're running Linux; use MPlayer instead:

    I need the browser plugin for Netscape 7.1 to view realplayer content. Thats why i needed to update the codecs and plugins.

    What do you type to move the codecs/plugins into the directory, after you type su?

    You type

    Code:
    su -
    To gain root access, then just execute mv <yourfiles> /usr/lib
