    Re: [Howto] Successfully install the svn mplayer + gmplayer + all the codecs.

    ok what I get from cp -v $HOME/Desktop/Blue/*.* $HOME/.mplayer/skins/default
    which as I can understand it is one command (correct me if I am wrong)
    is: cp: target `/home/rosi/.mplayer/skins/default' is not a directory (where rosi is my log in name)

    And so I can add a skin on the mplayer is it not that what this command does?

    Hi,

    Saw you in a bit of a pickle:

    That is exactly what this command does. gmplayer looks in a few places for the default skin and I selected this one for the walkthrough.

    Sounds like the required directory might not be there. Try this:

    Code:
    $ cd
    $ mkdir -pv .mplayer/skins/default
    $ cp -Rv /home/rosi/Desktop/Blue/* /home/rosi/.mplayer/skins/default
    And this should copy the contents of the Blue folder into the required directory.

    I use $HOME rather than /home/username so people do not have to remember to substitute 'username' for their own username

    Try the following and it will make sense:

    Code:
    echo $HOME
    All the very best with this, if you are down to the skin you must be almost there!

    Re: [Howto] Successfully install the svn mplayer + gmplayer + all the codecs.

    Thanks for the guide andrew and also to shirilover for the packaging info.

    The only problem is my gmplayer wont start:
    Code:
    $ gmplayer

    I've copied the skin data to the folder. Is there any other info that need to go into a config file or something?

    Hi,

    Sounds like you are almost there. Just 2 small steps have gone awry:

    You need to get a font configured for the On Screen Display and put the skin where gmplayer can find it. There are many ways to do this but my guide aims to make it straightfoward. Although I seem to have confused you a little

    For the OSN Font

    gmplayer needs to have a font specified for subtitles and the on-screen-display. There are several ways to do this, easiest way is to copy a decent font to the ~/.mplayer folder and give it a different name. Try this:


    Code:
    $ mkdir -v  $HOME/.mplayer
    $ sudo apt-get install ttf-bitstream-vera
    $ sudo cp -v /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-bitstream-vera/Vera.ttf ~/.mplayer/subfont.ttf
    This is a fairly crude way of doing it, a symlink would be better but I am trying to keep a complex subject simple. That should take care of the OSD error.

    For the skin

    gmplayer needs a skin to run and this does not come with the package, in fact the GUI is actually looked down at by some. The trick is to create the relevant folders and place a full skin pack in them in the right location.

    So:

    Code:
    $ cd $HOME
    $ mkdir -pv .mplayer/skins/default
    $ cd $HOME/Desktop
    $ wget http://www.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/skins/Blue-1.7.tar.bz2
    $ tar xjvf Blue-1.7.tar.bz2 
    $ cp -Rv $HOME/Desktop/Blue/* $HOME/.mplayer/skins/default
    And this should complete your setup. As you explore a bit more you will see that you can have many skins and chose from them, in fact I believe that there is a skin 'browser' in gmplayer.
    All the -v settings are for 'verbose' which should tell you if something is going wrong. Post the errors if there are any and they should be fixable.

    Let me know how you go?

    Re: [Howto] Successfully install the svn mplayer + gmplayer + all the codecs.

    Hey thanks for the info there were help full and everything worked until the command gmplayer..

    Then I got the following
    CPUflags: MMX: 1 MMX2: 1 3DNow: 0 3DNow2: 0 SSE: 1 SSE2: 1
    Compiled for x86 CPU with extensions: MMX MMX2 SSE SSE2
    Warning unknown option vo_dxr3_device at line 6
    [skin] file ( /usr/local/share/mplayer/skins/default/skin ) not found.
    Skin not found (default).

    I know that the rest of those commands that you send me worked cause I read all the log and I found that everything was copied and the file for the skin was made. *shrugs*

    Hi,

    Looks like a problem that can be solved:

    It is my suspicion that the skin is not placed correctly. Could you post the results of the following, the first reloads you locate database and the second looks for the exact location of one of the Blue skin files:

    Code:
    $ sudo updatedb
    $ locate subblue.png
    As for the error:

    Warning unknown option vo_dxr3_device at line 6
    I presume that you have written an ~/.mplayer/config file that has an error?

    Anyway please post the results of the locate command and then I suspect we can get gmplayer going.

    Re: [Howto] Successfully install the svn mplayer + gmplayer + all the codecs.

    rosi@rosi:~$ sudo updatedb
    Password:
    rosi@rosi:~$ locate subblue.png
    /home/rosi/.mplayer/skins/default/subblue.png
    /home/rosi/Blue/subblue.png
    /home/rosi/Desktop/Blue/subblue.png

    now that i see it, I think because I have 3 they may conflict with each other. I don't know *shrugs*


    for the error no, I just run gmplayer and I got the error (and all the above message)

    Hi,

    I have found the solution:

    The syntax that I gave before to install the skin was a little sloppy for which you have my apologies. Can I suggest that you delete the contents of your /home/rosi/.mplayer/skins/default directory but not the actual directory. And then run the following:

    Code:
    $ cp -Rv $HOME/Desktop/Blue/* $HOME/.mplayer/skins/default
    And again my apologies for the sloppy syntax of the guide that has now been corrected. Hopefully you will be looking at the glorious blue mplayer skin shortly

    Re: [Howto] Successfully install the svn mplayer + gmplayer + all the codecs.

    how do i do that, I know just

    sudo rm -i

    which will delete the file that I will name after the -i

    and the rm -r that will remove all the directory.

    even better how can I delete everything so i can reinstall them from the start step by step.

    Re: [Howto] Successfully install the svn mplayer + gmplayer + all the codecs.

    BTW it worked perfectly only with one video for the rest I get an error: Fail to open

    ok here is what happens, if I right click on a video file and say open with mplayer it can't be open if I brows the file from right click on the skin and say open file then brows it and open it is works...

    But the image is not good at all it is too bright and the subs are not that good, if I change to X11 from Xv it fixes the color of the image and the subs. few subs are misplaced and there is to big space between them and the image is small even in full screen the image is like normal size.

    any ideas?
