Yes, that's what I thought. SuSe does not include gcc.

Take a look here

I am surprised! I thought a c-compiler was enough? OR a gcc-compiler. The programs I have compiled used c++ OR gcc for compiling! mplayer looked for both and a c-compiler was already installed on SuSe. Anyway-the three packages started downloading immediately once I clicked on them in Konqueror. I hope I can find them later for installation through Yast!

HELP!!! I have installed mplayer but now I can't start the program! A skin, codecs, fonts have been downloaded and extracted to the deviced folders. Trying gmplayer give the following message:

The error message is pretty clear, no default Skin has been found.
Where and how did you install the skin?
In "/usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin/" or in "~/.mplayer/Skin/" ?

Basically a skin is just a directory, for example "~/.mplayer/Skin/Blue/" .
Then do this:

cd ~/.mplayer/Skin/
ln -s Blue/ default

I extracted the skin to:
In "/usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin/
A skin folder was created with the skin I selected!

cd ~/.mplayer/Skin/

gives the response:
bash: cd: /root/.mplayer/Skin/: No such file or directory
linux:~/mplayer #

Are you working under the root account all the time?

If it is installed in "/usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin/<skinfolder>" do:

Code:
cd /usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin/
ln -s <skinfolder> default
and replace <skinfolder> with the real name

That did the trick! Mplayer opens with the gui but with the following error message (even though I have installed western fonts in the directory):
/usr/local/share/mplayer/font

New_Face failed. Maybe the font path is wrong.
Please supply the text font file (~/.mplayer/subfont.ttf).
subtitle font: load_sub_face failed.


Is there a similar command for directing mplayer to the fonts directory?

And I can't seem to open the shared network files from the win XP server. Amarok plays the mp3:s fine and Kaffeine finds the .avi:s, but can't play them because it can only open local files. My intent was to replace kaffeine and Amarok(crashes all the time) with mplayer. Does mplayer need to be configured with the smb server to find networked files?

Make the in the "/usr/local/share/mplayer/font" there is not just the extracted fontdirectory.
The files in this fontdirectory should be in "/usr/local/share/mplayer/font".

Do you get what I'm trying to say?

EDIT: I have no idea about networked files. Try a google search on these keywords.

I copied the .raw font files into the directory /font and mplayer opened without any errors! Obviously the search path for the fonts doesn't go beyond the font library.

I am truly grateful for your help!! There is no way I could have done this on my own!!

I will go through the documentation now to see what is stopping mplayer to open networked files. I will try the copy/paste trick to see if mplayer finds all the codecs as well.

But you didn't answer my question. You are not running everything as root, are you?

Well-I log in as root. If that is what you mean. I rely on the programs default install directory for installations, but I don't put every file in the root. I create new folders in my Home Folder for downloads etc. But once I installed SuSe I couldn't log in. After asking a friend I managed to log in as root. I still haven't figured out how to set up a user account and password. I will take a look in the control center when I am up and running with mplayer. I still cant open the .avi from the DVD-player. I guess the codecs were not installed properly.

The first thing you should do is make a user account. Running as root is a HUGE security risk.

Talking

I have created a user account which I am now using. I was able to open a .avi over the LAN, but subtitles are still missing. Must be a font problem.

I am slowly getting there.
