you can set up the mimetype for your user ($HOME/.mailcap) or globally
by adding the line "application-smil: /location/of/realplay" to the file.
I guess I'm confused, are you expecting the realplay binary to be in
X11R6/bin, or are you confused about where and how to manually set up
you can figure out where realplay is by running "which realplay" in a
console - as long as the path is set up in the shell's $PATH variable.

If firefox is supposedly superior to every other browser,

I press BROWSE and another frame opens. I click on X11R6 and
eventually get to bin, and there the only file I see is
"xauth". ...CCan anybody 'splain this?
Set mime types and handlers correctly?
I use KDE and konqueror, but once in a while I have to set some mine type ->
handler things and it looks like you got a similar thing.
Ok, *which* mimetypes? There are mime files in ~/. and in
various ~/.mozilla directories? At least 2 in .mozilla--
one for firefox, one for mozilla. These are named
mimeTypes.rdf. Be nice if firefox considered that thhere
are a few of us old time CLI guys still around!
With mozilla, there are places to type in specs about the
"helper" apps; things such as files suffixed with ".smil"
use realplay. As do several other files. Both realplay
and mplayer can do everything (in theory); I've stuck
thanks, Dan, but I'm still lost.
