I am trying to install realplayer via synaptic but i keep gettin this error..... Screenshot-synaptic.png
I just installed Real Player this morning with no problem. The way I did it was go to Applications - Add/Remove and when the applet started I searched for Real Player. I then installed it from there. I think Helix is the company/person that ported Real Player to Ubuntu.
Sorry I missed your IM earlier RollTide. I was off playing with the kids.
I just did a search in synapic and the add remove thing and could not find Real Player at all. I was going to install it and see what happened. I do not have the helix player installed though. Did you add repos or change anything?
Hey np crane. Could'nt find it in add/remove either. Don't think it will be added until the final release of fiesty. But anyway I unistalled helix from symnaptic and then installed realplayer with no problem. Guess you have to have one or the other. Anyways thanx for the help guys.

Cool, glad you got it worked out.
I love trying to help out. If someone is having a problem I will try to duplicate it on my machine so I can help find a solution. I reckless that way.LOL
Actually, I just have everything partitioned and mounted so if I totally screw up I can reinstall with very little issues.
I've been running Feisty for about a month now. 3 more days until official release!
RealPlayer is not in Fiesty repo's yet. Install from site: http://uk.real.com/player/ make the file executable (chmod a+x) then ./ it will now ask you to choose a path(where you want to install it) opt is good. Simple.
tried the way described. I am having Fiesty Fawn. Keep getting this message "chmod: cannot access `realplayer10GOLD.bin': No such file or directory
How do I go about this problem.
