    Default OPenSUSE 11.1: RealPlayer installed but cannot be found


    Wishing to listen to BBC Radio 3 live I have followed the link to
    RealPlayer given on the BBC web-site and have installed RealPlayer 11.
    But I cannor find it anywhere in the list of applications under any
    category.

    Where is it and how do I start it?

    Try to start it from Konsole with this command (I'm not sure about
    executable, you can type *real* and hit TAB key 2x in Konsole):

    Code:
    --------------------

    realplay

    Wow, that's rather interesting. As I use Gnome, I initiated Realplayer
    in a terminal window. It started realplayer configuration which
    completed successfully and presented me with a windowed version of the
    player. But once I had closed that window, there was no icon for
    realplayer to be found on my system.

    So, I started Konsole and followed your instructions accurately. The
    result is:

    "** (process:9614): WARNING **: Unsupported locale en_GB! Please use a
    locale with .UTF-8 suffix! For example: export LANGUAGE=en_US.UTF-8"

    I love Linux. So meaningful....

    I conclude from this that either RealPlayer or OpenSuse 11.1 are still
    being developed and don't work properly together yet.

    Does this help:

    'How to install and Configure Real player in OpenSuse | SUSE &
    openSUSE' (http://tinyurl.com/7gx9fy)

    (Note that it does not link to the latest version of realplayer. Though
    you already have it and just need to configure it)
