Do you have suggestion on haw to manage the problem? Should I install
some mozilla plug-ins, and which one? There are so many in the mozilla
of them site (http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/linux.html). Maybe it's better (more
safe from the mozilla freezing point of view) to use a normal stream
player giving to it the file in the site. But then, which player do you
I'll appreciate any help, expecially if it's new-by oriented.
The easiest, simplest way to listen to the Beebe is to download
At http://www.real.com/ click on the big yellow icon that says,
"Download RealPlayer" and save the file in /tmp.
Then, in a terminal window:
su - (This is *your* machine, right?)
chmod u+x RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
It will ask you where to put the files. Tell it /usr/local (or
/usr/local/RealPlay,I forget which). After RealPlay is installed,
do this, in that same terminal window:
ln -s /usr/local/RealPlayer/mozilla/nphelix.so
ln -s /usr/local/RealPlayer/mozilla/nphelix.xpt
Restart Mozilla, and you *should* see RealPlayer in "about:plugins",
although it will be called:
Helix DNA Plugin: RealPlayer G2 Plug-In Compatible
BTW, if I tell the RealPlayer bin script to yes [Y] 'update the
system-wide symbolic links' and just press ENTER at the prefix prompt
(/usr), it automatically creates the plugin links for mozilla:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 44 Oct 17 18:43 flashplayer.xpt ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 46 Oct 17 18:43 libflashplayer.so ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 63 Oct 19 19:33 libjavaplugin_oji.so ->
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 20016 Jan 5 04:18 libnullplugin.so
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 40 Jan 24 00:53 nphelix.so ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 41 Jan 24 00:53 nphelix.xpt ->
Those links to /usr/local/realplayer/mozilla/nph* weren't created by me.
Just in case some is curious.
