Problem with gmplayer (GUI of Mplayer)

Hi I installed mplayer (not the RPM) an I putted my codecs in /usr/local/bin/codecs

and make my configure =
./configure --enable-gui --with-codecsdir=/usr/local/bin/codecs

make install
and when I tried the GUI of Mplayer (gmplayer) it gives this error:::::

Did it complain about not finding a default skin?
you can try gmplayer -skin <skin name>
note the skin name has to be a directory in your SKIN dirs
or try put your skins in /home/killah/.mplayer/Skin
you cant go wrong that way.
otherwise the other errors are quite normal, I get them too but it runs fine.
