Gmplayer Not Playing Nice With Fluxbox 0.9.7


I just upgraded to fluxbox 0.9.7 on my Gentoo box and I'm having issues with the mplayer gui. When ever I go to open up a file in mplayer the open file box appears behind the main window. This is really annoying since I have to move the windows around just to get to where I have to go.

I went to the flubox irc channel but I can't even get anybodys attention there. I was wondering if anybody has a similar problem.

Here is a screenshot of what the problem looks like.

Nice. I forgot about that remember feature. Thanks a lot!

By the way kewpie...I was wondering about acidrip. Did you write the gtk2 perl code by hand or did you use glade? Any good resources to point me towards for writing gtk2-perl applications? Either way acidrip is really nice.

i wroet the initial gtk-perl UI using glade, I then hacked it a lot, added my own widget routines, and then later i manually converted it to Gtk2, which took bloody ages. AFAIK my app is the most high-profile gtk2-perl app around (exluding some bits of the mandrake installer from and old version of gtk2-perl).... they've relcently been doing a lot of docs for gtk2-perl, on their site...
