Help me please! mplayer launcher???


Hi please as a damned noob i would like to know where do i go to make a shortcut for mplayer (kaffeine?) (no launcher in the gnome menu) on mdk 10.1 i've looked in /etc/ directory and nothing. I know that my reaction may show that i'm a lazy guy but it's for me and for my costumers... Please could some one help me?

Thanks

PS it's borring to have to open the gnome term and type always the cmd "# kaffeine" and wait for open it... i want a launcher....

don't you just right click on your desktop and choose "new shortcut" ? sure it was last time i went near gnome. won't have anything to do with /etc/ for one thing though.

also Kaffiene has nothing to do with MPlayer, it is a Xine front end. Mplayer is much better than Xine....

just add it in your menu, or create a shortcut icon. the commands are located in /usr/bin

did you also install the package mplayer-gui? that's the gui front end for mplayer. without it, you can only use mplayer via command. try typing the following at a prompt......

Code:
gmplayer
or

Code:
/usr/bin/gmplayer
if you get an error or mplayer doesn't load, that means you prolly don't have the gui package installed, so install it.

once you get that set up, you can create a shortcut to it if you like. i use KDE, so i don't know the procedure to do that in Gnome. if you create a shortcut, use the following for the command to launch it........

Code:
/usr/bin/gpmplayer -quiet -nofs
that will launch MPlayer without the splash screen (-quiet) and not in fullscreen mode (-nofs).
