Alright, things is a changin, and I think I'm getting close to an answer.
After running command
echo 1024 > /proc/sys/dev/rtc/max-user-freq
while in root, when I try to run gmplayer, I get this instead.

You will not be able to use your remote control.
This is diffrent than before. I think the Permission Denied might be messing me up. Which brings me to a new set of questions.
For some reason, I think mplayer is owned by root. The GUI search function on SuSe is not working.
(For example, if I search the "/" folder for mplayer, I get 5 or so results, if I search "/home/jordan/" I get 12 results. The search function should continue recursively throughout the entire system, but for some reason it does not.)
The reason that matters is that I'm trying to find out where the mplayer and gmplayer links are, and where the program is installed. I have had no luck finding them (because of buggy search), so I have been unable to change their permisions so that normal users can use them. The gmplayer and mplayer commands were not installed for root, so I can't run them under root because I don't know where they are.
Where would the actual mplayer and gmplayer links/files be found?
What is the command prompt search command?
Am I barking up the wrong tree and are permissions not even one of my problems?
I could be totally wrong, but I'd like to know.
