Replace r with Exp[u]/Kappa and then it is now f[u_]

The above does not give zero for constant numerical values assumed for RM and lambda, so may not be correct. The solution is in terms of Log and Tanh functions using DSolve.

It is better to use NDSolve at first numerically check for zero right hand side of equation, then DSolve analytically next.
