RealPlayer 11 Gold

Today I installed RealPlayer 11 Gold. The 1st time I installed it I didn't use "sudo" so the binary didn't have proper write permissions and it installed in the home directory. The final result is that it didn't work properly. It would launch but only if I dug through the binary directory installed in my home folder and told it to execute manually. The menu icon/launcher didn't work at all. It gave me some kind of "child process error". So I deleted everything from my hard drive relating to RealPlayer and started over.

This time, I went to the terminal and changed the desktop directory and typed "sudo ./Real" and hit enter. The next thing I know is the install process completed secussfully, and it works as it's supposed to.
