Andrew I am trying to fix a problem. The issue is its somewhat impractical to have to manually setup a link to every user's home directory for the TTF font. I'm using a global configuration file to make the mplayer experience consistent across all users in /etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf:
Even though I have the font correctly defined mplayer spits out:
# mplayer config file version 0.2 15/04/09
# global setup
# DVD navigation
profile-desc="profile for dvdnav:// streams"
Thanks for any help

/usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-bitstream-vera/Vera.ttf doesn't look like a bitmap font description, ignoring.
Cannot load bitmap font: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-bitstream-vera/Vera.ttf
