Doesn't simple
command work? Also, .tar.gz are source files. Have you compiled the program (lib package first)?

simply "xine" command is not working and I had first installed
xine-lib 1.1.8 .tar .gz file which is for library then the xine-ui 0.99.5 .tar.gz file.
these were the files that were asked to be installed from what i read from the Xine Player website.
Is there sth. else to be done?
