install mplayer again with gui support. the only thing you have to change is do the configure command like this
Code:
./configure --enable-gui
and it should compile with gui support

I am also trying to get the gui to work you need to download a skin and place it in the proper directory. and also run the command
./configure --enable-gui
also need to download the fonts
all of the directions are in the README file
mplayer --help to use without the GUI
