mplayer installation error and acrobat reader
I took someone's advice from one thread about mplayer installation, which said I should use apt and synaptic to install it. Wow, what a great software synaptic is..I wish I had known it before.
I got the synaptic working fine, but everytime I tried to open a video file, there is a Fatal Error message, which says "Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device".
Then I tried playing mp3s, and it works.
Is it because of the video card driver? I'm using ELSA FALCOX 920 FX, which uses ATI Radeon chips. I downloaded the VIDIX - RADEON driver, installed it, but nothing fixed.
FYI, my PC is under RedHat 9
Another things is, why sometimes my synaptic suddenly closes itself? So does my xine...
As of the acrobat reader, I couldn't make a link of it in my panel. How do I make shortcuts like those in the start menu of Windows?
Anyway, I'm a total newbie, and was a heavy Windows user, still am actually, so please bear with me, and explain anything slowly, step by step...Thx a lot..
Right click the "start" menu icon and select 'menu editor'. You can then add items to your heart's content.
I right clicked on it, but the menus that came out :
Remove from panel
No suc"h thing as Menu Editor.
Anyway I click somewhere inside the Office menu and found "Entire Menu" then "Add new item"
Then a create launcher window came out.
I fiiled in the application name and command, but when I click OK, there is an error message, "Cannot save menu item to disk"
Anyway, is there anyone that can help me with the mplayer???
It may be that you don't have the correct codecs installed. I think that this error is covered on the FAQs on the mplayer home page.
What type of file that mplayer can open without any additional codecs? I think better try that first...If that doesn't work, that means the problem isn't with the codecs.
