Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Here is an excerpt from the README for mplayer install
STEP6: Installing a GUI skin
Unpack the archive and put the contents in /usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin/ or
~/.mplayer/Skin/. MPlayer will use the skin in the subdirectory named default
of /usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin/ or ~/.mplayer/Skin/ unless told otherwise via
the '-skin' switch. You should therefore rename your skin subdirectory or make
a suitable symbolic link.
This is what I did I untarred the gui(called Orange) I downloaded then did the command
#mv Orange /usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin/
is this the right procedure? it gives me these errors amung others
SKIN dir 1: '/root/.mplayer/Skin'
SKIN dir 2: '/usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin'
[skin] file ( /usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin/default/skin ) not found.
Skin not found ( default ).
Okay, I would suggest what MMX said for downloading the Default. Then you won't get confused about the different themes later on, and hopefully you will be able to switch themes... I never got the GUI to work with Mplayer, but now after I reformatted my whole box, I'm running RealPlayer on it. I suppose I'll have to install MPlayer if I want to watch any Quicktime videos, however....
