    General Installation Help
    Zattoo may work on other distributions, but will require extra steps. You may try installing with the rpm package or use the tgz to do a more manual installation.

    * 1. Download the deb, rpm or tgz.
    o Download Linux Player(.rpm)
    Download Linux Player(.tgz)
    * 2. Install gtkglext-1.2.0-4.fc6.i386 using your package manager (see distro specific instructions below)

    * 4. Install the rpm or deb or unpack the tgz and move everything to the correpsonding location under /usr
    * 5. Install xulrunner. We suggest putting the xulrunner in /usr/lib/zattoo. We have a build of xulrunner available or you can download it from
    * 6. Create symbol links from the required (debian) xulrunner library names to the actual names. If you have installed xulrunner in /usr/lib/zattoo, then it would be something like this:
    o sudo ln -s /usr/lib/zattoo/xulrunner/ /usr/lib/zattoo/
    o sudo ln -s /usr/lib/zattoo/xulrunner/ /usr/lib/zattoo/
    o sudo ln -s /usr/lib/zattoo/xulrunner/ /usr/lib/zattoo/

    o sudo ln -s /usr/lib/zattoo/xulrunner/ /usr/lib/zattoo/
    * 7. Run ldconfig on the /usr/lib/zattoo directory with something like "sudo /sbin/ldconfig /usr/lib/zattoo"
