Question Tar files


Hi everyone..

can anyone tell me how to install themes for MPLayer in Suse 8.2..

Basically i want to know how to extract *.tar.bz2 files and then configure them...

Thanx in advance....
and on a more serious note....is there any site from where we can download videos or maybe episodes of sitcoms free of cost...:-)

bye
Rahul

"Y" is the fundamental question?
Existance is the answer.

to untar the file try this
Code:
tar xvfj name.of.the.file.tar.bz2
within the file that is created should be README or INSTALL file that will tell you how to install

as far as the episodes of sitcoms:
this is a risky subject as most or all (i am not sure) are copyrighted to the producer or someone so i don't think that it would be right for us to discuss that here.

Well, since you are using SUSE, I would suggest that you download the mplayer rpms and then install them. The three rpm's that are absolutely required are

mplayer-gui-0.91-2
mplayer-skin-default-1.0-2
mplayer-common-0.91-2.

bz2 files are extracted with a utility called bunzip2.
