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.

Since my ogle has suddenly stopped working, I've decided to give mplayer a shot. I don't like gmplayer, so I want to run everything from the command line . I'm trying to play DVD's, but I also want to set language and subtext. I've check the man mplayer (what huge doc by the way) and I'm doing as it says, but it fails.
mplayer -dvd 1 -slang se
So, like this I'm trying to play with swedish subtext right? But it does not work. I've tried the country codes that could be there, as sv and sw, but nothing. I then tried another DVD, Dragon ball
mplayer -dvd 1 -alang jp -slang se
What I want now is to play the dvd, track 1, with japanese sound and swedish subtext. What am I doing wrong?
Yeah, the DVD plays just fine. I've tried to run gmplayer and it works fine with both languages and subtexts.
I get an error running gmplayer though:
New_Face failed. Maybe the font path is wrong
Pleasy supply the text font title
But it still plays fine with subtext and other languages under GUI. Sure, I would like to get also the above error message sorted out, but I am not really willing to run mplayer under gui...
I'm using Slackware 9.0 and I've compiled the player myself
That's what I think it's the most strange. I am still thinking it has to be something to do with those fonts problems I have. At the documentation (finally improved) they say I have to install my ttf fonts at /home/.mplayer/font. I did it, but I still get the very same error message. I still think something is wrong with the command line though, because even if I cannot get the subtext, I should be able to switch the speech (as I mentioned above) but neither work. Would be necessary to compile mplayer with some special -- after configure perhaps?
no according to the man page it's as simple as compiling and running from the command line,
are you sure it's reading the home .mplayer directory and not a default somewhere else?
should be a font error, are you running it as a normal user?
Thanks again man . Yeah, I'm running as a normal user. Good question though if it's reading from the .mplayer directory. I've never thought about checking it . I will take a look and let you know the results.
