Difficulty installing Realplayer10 for Ubuntu

Asked by sunnydayzrback on 2006-01-27

I tried to install RealPlayer in my Ubuntu 5.10 os. But when I give the sudo ./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin command its showing this error
./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I searched in google and entered the following command

ln -s /usr/local/lib/libstdc++.so.5 /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5

but it showed the below error

ln: creating symbolic link `/usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5' to `/usr/local/lib/libstdc++.so.5': Permission denied

and my terminal is showing
sunil@pogo:~$
instead of only
$

I am new to Linux plz any one help me

Since the library and the directories in question are owned by root, you need to prepend the command with 'sudo' to grant your user with permissions for the duration of the command.

sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/libstdc++.so.5 /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5

Thank u for the prompt reply. Actually even the above didnt work what i did was i checked for the file "libstdc++" in synaptic manager & installed it after which there was no problem in installation. Thank u
