wanted to install realplayer 10 for linux(i want to watch news clips from the bbc and cnn) ,the instructions seem pretty straight forward:
- Ensure that the .bin file you downloaded is executable. You can make the .bin file executable by running the "chmod a+x RealPlayer10GOLD.bin" command from a terminal window.
- Run the .bin file by typing "./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin". Follow the prompts provided to finish installing the player.
- When you launch the player for the first time, a set-up assistant will take you through configuring your player.
i plan on doing all this in my home directory. The thing is should i do it as root ,or is doing it as User good enough.
and it doesn't really mention what command i would have to use to launch it the first time, i'm assuming that i have to open a terminal, change into the directory that the Bin is in (my home directory)and type ./realplayer
