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)
