Question mplayer to gmplayer

maybe a stupid question, but I hope someone can show me the way ;o)

I compiled/installed mplayer 0.92-3.2 ... and everything works fine(RH 8.0) I thought skins would be fine (as it only runs from the command line)... donloaded skins..put them in the "right" directory ... and tried gmplayer..... as you can propably guess..nothing...command unknown, as I didn t compile with --enable-gui .
Now the question: Is there a way to convince mplayer to a gmplayer, or do I have to recompile ?

If you didn't compile it the first time, you'll have to recompile to make it work. You can't trick it into using the GUI if you didn't compile it the first time. Just doesn't work that way.

Recompiling shouldn't take too long if you do it from the same directory as you used before (if you haven't done a make clean after your previous make). Many files will be unchanched and won't have to be recompiled. That's the beauty of make.
