This is a difference between *NIX and DOS; the current directory is
not searched for binaries etc, for security reasons; you don't want a
random file called 'ls' executed if it's in the current directory.
You need to put ./ in front of your commands;
ragweed at ragweed-den:~/Desktop$ sudo ./RealPlayer11GOLD.bin.tar.gz
Should work :)
Don't put . in your path though, it's a Bad Idea.
