Xine installation


I just installed Slack (my first distro) a few days ago, and I'm still learning how to install programs. I downloaded Xine and followed the instructions. I compiled and installed it, but now what? I can't find the program anywhere in the menus. How can I start the program?

just run it from a console. or learn how to put things in whatever menus you have. alternatively get a decent video player, like mplayer.

When I type in xine from a console, it tells me command not found. I will try mplayer too, but not until I can figure out how to install this one correctly .

It's in /usr/local/lib/xine along with mplayer. I installed mplayer and was able to add it to my menu with kappfinder, but mplayer doesn't work either. It tries to load forever and then quits

Don't feel too bad mplayer doen't work for me right now either - must have installed the f$%#@$ thing about 20 times before with no problems whatsoever and now it tells me that I don't have X11 installed.
When you do ./configure check if it finds your x11-headers and libs and X11.
It doesn't at my box.
As for xine just type xine in a terminal and se what pops up.If nothing pops up try to cd to /usr/local/lib/xine and try it in the directory.
