    Why won't RealPlayer work?!


    When I try to run RealPlayer10, nothing happens. I've tried the rpm and bin files from real.com, and also the rpm that Suse provides.

    If I do a ps -ef | grep real I can see that the programs are running, just nothing appears on my screen.

    Anyone else had this and fixed it?

    Right, sussed the Realplayer not appearing thing. It was because my sounds were still enabled. I turned these off and things are fine and dandy.

    Now I can't get realplayer to be recognised as a plugin is Firefox.
    Anyone else had this problem and fixed it?

    Yeah I've tried all that. It just doesn't seem to recoginse the new plugin.
    I might just uninstall and reinstall or something?
