    Mplayer problems

    Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and not very experienced with the linux world either. I don't know why but today my mplayer just doesn't work. I have a Ubuntu Hoary 5.04. This is what I get if I launch it from terminal:

    :~ $ gmplayer
    MPlayer 1.0pre6-3.3.5 (C) 2000-2004 MPlayer Team
    CPU: Advanced Micro Devices Athlon 4 /Athlon MP/XP Palomino (Family: 6, Stepping: 2)

    Compiled for Debian.

    Can anyone help me solving the problem? Thanks in advance.

    Which version of gtk do you have installed? The applications have to use the same version of gtk in order for them to find the modules in the directory, in this case the module not found is located at (example) /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.4.0/engines/

    You can first try the command ldconfig as root in order to see if that updates the library locations, or if that fails you may want to consider upgrading gtk. Compiling mplayer from source may also do the trick in order to make sure that it's using the version of gtk that you have, the reason I put that last is because it would be easier to upgrade gtk and solve this problem and any further problems you may have down the line with other programs than to simply iron out this one kink
