Step 1. Download the Real Player

Download link: https://player.helixcommunity.org/2005/downloads/

I suggest to download the ‘Installer’ program. It’s much easier.

Step 2. Change access permission

taufanlubis@toshiba:~$ ls -l realplay-

-rw-r–r– 1 taufanlubis taufanlubis 5790356 2008-02-12 08:20 realplay-

taufanlubis@toshiba:~$ sudo chmod a+x realplay-

taufanlubis@toshiba:~$ ls -l realplay-

-rwxr-xr-x 1 taufanlubis taufanlubis 5790356 2008-02-14 07:55 realplay-


When you install the realplay, make sure that your directory name has no space, otherwise it will create an error. For example:

taufanlubis@toshiba:~/mydata/My Ubuntu Collections/packages$ sudo ./realplay-
