    Real Player


    After days of trying, I finally succeeded in installing Real Player using Wine. It is sitting on my desktop. The problem is it won't open up and play. I would greatly appreciate any help with this.

    If I get this right, you are trying to setup and run "real player" as an .exe file with Wine. Why don't you just donwload the .rpm file for that and install it like any software through
    Code:
    rpm -ihv filename.rpm
    I would say it is much easier this way.

    Hi - there's no need to run Realplayer using Wine. As the previous poster mentioned there's a version that will run natively on Linux, even if it has fewer nice features. You just need to locate it on the Realplayer site as it's non-free software.
