Follow the directions for Realplayer:
I would advise you not to use the Firefox plugins directory. Place the
symbolic link for nphelix.so in the /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins directory. Do
the same for nphelix.xpt but put it in the components directory. This way,
you don't have to put back the link each time Firefox is upgraded.
Additionally, the plugins installed there will be available for all Mozilla
