GUI for mplayer


I installed mplayer with the ./configure --enable-gui

when I type mplayer by itself it does not want to load. It wants the commands like I do it from the command line. I wanted to play around with the gui. Any ideas on how to accomplish this?

I'm not sure if I understand, but the command to run gui mplayer is gmplayer, not mplayer. Is that what you mean?

I downloaded a skin. /usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin/ is what I have. I tried creating a folder default/skin and putting it there bu no go.

Any ideas?

You did the right thing by downloading the skin, but you need to name the skin folder default, eg: if you downloaded the default Blue skin, name the Blue folder default and put it in the /usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin/ folder. Then it will load the skin file from there.

Are you making a directory called "skin"? this would be incorrect. What you should have is a directory called "default" and put your skin files in that. Or change the name of the skin listed in your config file.
