You can make the .bin file executable by running the "chmod a+x RealPlayer10GOLD.bin" command from a terminal window. - Run the .bin file by typing "./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin". Follow the prompts provided to finish installing the player. - When you launch the player for the first time, a set-up assistant will take you through configuring your player. - Enjoy your RealPlayer10 for Linux!

Hi Trier36,
if you setup your connection with pppconfig, connect with  pon  and 
disconnect with poff.
I think you may have to be in the same directory as your .bin file. If 
you downloaded it to
"Desktop" you will need in the terminal to change into Desktop directory 
first. e.g. below

squareyes at here:~$ cd Desktop/
squareyes at here:~/Desktop$

Then try chmod etc.  

Hope this is of some help.
Take Care
