maybe u can try to run mplayer by

$ gmplay -vo x11

dun use "$" at the end as it kills mplayer once it starts....
dun forget to install skins and fonts according to the README or INSTALL file...

p/s are u sure it is gmplay but not gmplayer? anyway if the above doesnt work just try it again with gmplayer...
