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.

I haven't changed anything on my system, and haven't changed anything in mplayer. Yet when I start it from the mulitmedia menu, it now decides to play my dvds in french.
If I run it from the command line mplayer /-alang "en" dvd 1 it works fine. Problem is if I add that to the command in the menu editor, I get errors 'en' not found.
It doesn't bother me to use the command line, but the wife don't like to use it. I like to keep things point and click for her.
Question is where do I change the language to "en"? What directory can I find this in? I have tried adding it to the config file in users directory, but get the same error as when I add it to the menu.
Xine and Ogle still play fine and use the correct language. However I prefer to use mplayer.
