Opera is a full-featured Internet tool, most notably a fully standard conforming Web browser. Opera includes pop-up blocking, tabbed browsing, integrated searches, and advanced functions like a password manager, mouse gestures, native Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) support, an email program, RSS newsfeeds, and IRC chat. It is designed to be fast and highly customizable.
If you want to install opera Web browser you need to edit your /etc/apt/sources.list file and enter the source list and save your file.

Install Real Player 10 in Ubuntu

Realplayer 10 in action
by typing the given code for the real player in the terminal it is not installed in my computer it is giving some error
Thank you for making it so easy to install RealPlayer10 on my Ubuntu system. I like the programs that come with Ubuntu but prefer the KDE environment wo I can use either desktop. However, now that it is up and running, how can I configure Firefox to recognize it when I go to a site like cnn.com and click on one of their video’s that requires RealPlayer10?
try to follow this and let me know if it works or not
go to /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins
Use the following command
sudo rm libtotem-complex-plugin.*
Firefox is preconfigured to play real audio streams with totem. To use the real player plugin you must remove the totem plugin responsible to play these real audio streams.
i hope this helps
Thank you for your prompt answer. I do not have libtotem-complesplugin.so,libtotem-comples-plugin.xpt files in the path you suggested. In the /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins directory I have:
libjavaplugin_oji.so, libunixprintplugin.so, nphelix.so and nphelix.xpt files. There are no other files. Could these plugins be located somewhere else?
Should I still try to use the rm for the plugin you suggested?
by default this should have installed all the required plugins and if you could give me what error you are getting when you try to view real media
When I attempt to open a video link a window opens stating: Plugin Warning: The CNN.com video experience is optimized for Windows Media Player 9 or above. No Windows Media detected. There is a link that states get the player.
I installed Opera to see if there was a difference but that didn’t help, either.
I have an update to my video playback using Firefox. Unfortunately I have not been able to get a video to play in Firefox or Opera. However, I am running the KDE desktop on Ubuntu and when I open Konqueror, I can view the video files from CNN.
please help me how to install real player 10?
When I click the following link on your website:
Nothing happens and realplayer 10 is not installed.
