The thing is that RealPlayer, Adobe, flash, and etc. or all linux apps. I
think the wrapper is just as important as the x-wrapper is to run as
When I installed it, and followed the instructions, I could use acrobat, and
some of the flash/shockwave stuff in both konqueror and mozilla. Realplay
never showed up in the plugin list for mozilla but I can go to a site that
has *.ram files and click them and hear the music.
Konqueror is really anal when it comes to getting rid of kmplayer as the
defautl. I can also visit the same site as mozilla and play the *.ram files.
The thing is that I moved rpnp.so into so many places that I don't know what
made mozilla work. I got the idea from the links in the about plugin link on
mozilla > help. It was basically any place that locate claimed to be a
mozilla plugin directory. It was finally - well, I give up, let see what it
does and it worked. I don't have a clue what fixed it because I was looking
for it in the plugin list and it never showed up.
