I installed mplayer and everything works fine, but i would like to run also gmplayer that i like more. What should i do?

After the ./configure part, and adding to enable the gui, did you keep going thru with make and make install? Got to complete the steps to get it configured.

It seems to me that you don't have a skin installed or it is not where it should be.

Go to http://www.mplayerhq.hu/homepage/design6/dload.html and get one.

You need to get the mplayer-skin and the mplayer-common files from the mplayerhq site and install them just like you did the mplayer file.

I used rpm -Uvh --force mplayer-common file name.rpm

It installed and works just fine.

You might want to wait for a Linux vet to confirm if you should do this or not as I don't want to be responsible for causing any other problems this may create with your system.
