GMplayer problem...(Please Help)


Whenever I execute the command: gmplayer

I get this...

Quote:
roach@darkstar:~$ gmplayer
MPlayer 1.0pre5-3.3.4 (C) 2000-2004 MPlayer Team

Falling back on default (hardcoded) input config
SKIN dir 1: '/home/roach/.mplayer/Skin'
SKIN dir 2: '/usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin'
Now I have the default skin in /usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin/

yet gmplayer does not load.

Does anyone know why this would be happening, and how I can fix this?

Try putting it in a folder called default.

/usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin/default

I've done that. That's what happens when i put the skin in that directory. When I take it out...it get's that far...but says something like "skin not found".

put it in your $HOME/.mplayer/Skin/default directory. If does not exist, create them.

Make sure you download a set of fonts too and extract a set to ~/.mplayer/font.Don't forget to copy the input.conf and codec.conf from the /etc directory,where you compiled mplayer to ~/.mplayer.

Code:
$ ls .mplayer/Skin/

barmute.png  exit.png     menu.png         pos.png       stop.png
Is the output from ls .mplayer/Skin in my Home directory. I think the new version of MPlayer needs you to extract the skin files to Skin in your MPlayer directory. I put my skins, fonts and codecs in my Home directory so I don't need to use su to change or add to them.
