problem with gmplayer
when I try to start gmplay the program returns the following error:


[skin] error in skin config file on line 29: unknown message: evEqualizer
When I'm starting a movie with mplayer it works fine, but I cannot start gmplayer. Any ideas?

Welcome to LQ.

Try removing the skins directory and reinstalling the default skin:

I've made a lot of tries. $PREFIX/share/mplayer/Skin/default/ must be the directory where must be put the files, right? :)


root@ThunderBird:~# ls /usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin/default/

This is the directory containing the default skin. Please correct me if must be other.

That should be right - did you reinstall the skin there?

If you still have problems then try commenting out line 29 of the skin file.

I had this idea and did the commenting. Then the program has succesully started but I couldnt play any movie and big part of the images wasnt on the right place. - the screen.

heh - not exactly useable.

What version of mplayer are you using is it an offical download from:

Perhaps you could try a different skin as a test - Proton is quite good.
