Well, it was easier than I thought. I clicked their download link for
the .deb package and up popped a dialog asking if I wanted to run the
Package Manger to install. I chose to save the file, and then selected
Open File in Firefox's download manager and it installed with no
problem. So, I just learned that there is in fact a GUI installer for
.deb packages in Ubuntu. It even handled downloading the dependencies
for me. Very nice!
Now to check to see if Real Player works.
