Well first off, xine has it's own very functional front end, kxine seems to be reinventing a wheel that doesn't need to be.

Second, post a bit more of that error message, from my end I think it looks a little shaved.
Also tell us what you have done/attempted to do to get it installed.

Cool

I gave up on xine when I discovered mplayer. No need for it because mplayer can play just about any format. They also have gui that is great minus the playlist option. You should try it out:

Word! Or, sorry, more politically correct:
I second that!

But to each their own, and xine has it's place (right next to Mplayer as a great runner up).

Cool

That's a bzipped tarball, you untar it:
tar xvjf filename.bz2
With the -j flag instead of -z
