Gmplayer, full screen
This is probably a very stupid question, but I can't find the solution by myself, nor did I find anything by searching on LQ.

I installed gmplayer (slackware 9.1 + package from, no problem whatsoever.

But how do I hide the gui when in full screen ? I didn't find any button to make it disappear.

Thanks in advance,

Just click somewhere in the video window and the gui will minimize.

Thanks ! It works, sort of.

If I simply click on the video screen (left mouse button), the gui is surrounded in black for a brief moment, but stays. If I click on the right mouse button, I get a menu but the gui disappears. I then click on the left mouse button and the menu is gone too. Not elegant, but good enough for me:).

The gui having a black border is weird though, I've never seen that happen before!
To avoid gui issues you can always watch movies using mplayer

$ mplayer whatever_movie.mpg

and simply press "f" to go fullscreen.

mplayer issues
mplayer doesn't like me either.

mplayer played my videos perfectly. Then I exited kde (most of the time I'm in console mode). For another reason, I was curious about the processes running, so I typed "ps -e". *Outside* kde, in basic slackware console mode, there was *five* mplayer processes still running. I butchered those processes obviously, but still it's enough to make me prefer gmplayer, which doesn't leave processes running around.
