trouble ahead, trouble behind....trouble with mplayer


I am having some issues with mplayer. I have the latest source, installed and all, but I am unable to get the GUI working. I downloaded a theme, Neutron specifically, and tarred it into the /usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin/ directory, created a default directory, and a skin directory within that, and then created a link of the neutron folder inside the default folder...all these were directions I read on a previous post relating to this...this is what I get now after running gmplayer:
-----------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------

and then it just stays blank, as if the program is running, but I can't see anything. When I do a ctrl-c to kill it, a window pops up and says "mplayer interrupted by signal 2 in module : unknown"

What is wrong with my mplayer?

Easiest way I'd suggest going about this:

First off, you'll need a Font, it appears you don't have one setup.

Second, it's easiest, I find, to grab the "default" font from Mplayer, use it as the default, then download others and use the gmplayer tool to switch (in the preference I think).

Cool

I downloaded a font from the mplayer website, an arial font pack, the only one I could find actually...it untars into like 10 directories of different font sizes, so i copied all the arial18 font files to the /usr/local/share/mplayer/font/ directory, and it detects them on the startup, but still no mplayer. Same result as before...here is my updated log:

-----------------------------------------
[root@localhost cp1250]# gmplayer

Exact same result as before, mplayer is running, but I can't see anything...

Try using the actual "Default" skin first, then switch after that is working. It's easiest to troubleshoot a problem that way

Cool
