Mplayer: compiled with GUI support?


Kernel 2.6.21.5, Slackware 12.0
Mplayer 1.0rc2-4.1.2.

Hi:
I have compiled and installed the mplayer tarball and I have disposed of both the tarball and its contents. There was the option to compile either for the physical console alone or for both this and the GUI. And I really don't remember which one I did choose.

Is there a away to know? Thanks in advance.

Hi,

You can take a look at the 1st line of configure.log inside the mplayer sources directory

Hi:

There is no file named configure.log in the whole disk and
I see no sources for mplayer. I must have done 'make --option', where option would erase the sources. What I see, is a /usr/local/bin/gmplayer. I think the 'g' is for gnome, in which case, it is the same as if it were not compiled for the GUI: neither have I gnome nor do I intend to use it. Thanks for your kind reply.

The sources do not get deleted when you run "make clean" or "make distclean", so I guess you have deleted the directory

gmplayer stands for the g(ui)mplayer, NOT gnome, so you can use it with your favorite window manager or DE. You can select various skins from the mplayer homepage

Hi:
I suspected the makefile does not generally do those things. And yes; I did erase the directory; I now remember. The prefix 'g' standing for 'GUI' was good! The duality has many instances, I think. I even sometimes thought the 'g' was for GNU.

It is things like this that make appreciate LQ more and more the further I use it. Thanks, bathory.

If you compiled with GUI, then invoking gmplayer from the command line will start the GUI version. If you didn't compile, then that command won't be found.

i take it this is a gnome desktop ?
if so then building mplayer with the gnome gui there should be /urs/bin/gmplayer
