    How did you install Xine? Execute permissions should have been given to users other than root. If not, you do not need to change the owner of xine and gxine, simply change the permissions to allow other users to execute them, like this:

    Code:
    su -
    Password&#58;<root password>
    chmod 755 /usr/bin/xine 
    chmod 755 /usr/bin/gxine
    Obviously, you may need to change "/usr/bin" to whatever directory your links are in.

    The error you're getting means you don't have the correct video codec installed for WMV version 9. It has nothing to do with permissions. Most distributions don't include codecs like this because of legal issues. You should be able to download the win32 codecs from the Mplayer website.

    Look for the "Codecs" section.

    hmm just to be sure.. ive remove .gxine and .xine in my home... then i xine-check, here was the result ::


    [ good ] You seem to have a reasonable kernel version (2.4.31)
    [ good ] intel compatible processor, checking MTRR support
    [ good ] you have MTRR support and there are some ranges set.
    [ good ] found the player at /usr/bin/xine
    [ good ] /usr/bin/xine is in your PATH
    [ good ] found /usr/bin/xine-config in your PATH
    [ good ] plugin directory /usr/lib/xine/plugins/1.0.2 exists.
    [ good ] found unknown plugin: xineplug_flac.so
    [ good ] found input plugins
    [ good ] found demux plugins
    [ good ] found decoder plugins
    [ good ] found video_out plugins
    [ good ] found audio_out plugins
    [ good ] skin directory /usr/share/xine/skins exists.
    [ good ] found logo in /usr/share/xine/skins
    [ good ] I even found some skins.
    [ hint ] /dev/cdrom points to /dev/hdd, but that's unreadable.
    Looks, like you have a /dev/cdrom device that points to your CD-ROM
    drive. That is good, as xine uses this device to read VCDs or audio CDs
    by default.
    However, you don't have permission to read from this device, so you
    won't be able to use it, at least not with this account, that's bad...
    Most people nowadays fix this by using a 'cdrom' group:
    make sure, that you have a group named 'cdrom', become root and type
    chgrp cdrom /dev/hdd
    chmod g+r /dev/hdd
    Now you only have to make sure you're in the cdrom group. The command
    id -a
    (executed as normal user) should tell you. Some systems add users to
    the 'cdrom' group when they log in from a local console. If yours
    doesn't, you'll have to add yourself to that group using your system's
    user management tools...
    press <enter> to continue...

    [ hint ] /dev/dvd points to /dev/hdd, no r/w permissions
    Looks, like you have a /dev/dvd device that points to your DVD-ROM
    drive. That is good, as xine uses this device to read DVDs by
    default.
    However, you don't have read/write permissions for this device, so you
    won't be able to use it, at least not with this account, that's bad...
    If you're wondering about write permissions: they're needed to set
    some DVD-specific modes on the drive.
    Many people nowadays fix this by using a 'cdrom' group:
    make sure, that you have a group named 'cdrom', become root and type
    chgrp cdrom /dev/hdd
    chmod g+rw /dev/hdd

    id -a
    (executed as normal user) should tell you. Some systems add users to
    the 'cdrom' group when they log in from a local console. If yours
    doesn't, you'll have to add yourself to that group using your system's
    user management tools...
    press <enter> to continue...

    good ] found xvinfo: X-Video Extension version 2.2
    [ hint ] Your X server doesn't support YV12 overlays.
    That means xine will have to do color space transformation and scaling
    in software, which is quite CPU intensive. Maybe upgrading your
    X server will help here.
    If you have an ATI card, you'll find accelerated X servers on
    http://www.linuxvideo.org/gatos/

    press <enter> to continue...

    [ hint ] Your X server doesn't have any XVideo support...
    XVideo is an X server extension introduced by XFree86 4.x. This
    extension provides access to hardware accelerated color space
    conversion and scaling, which gives a great performance boost.
    If you have a fast (>1GHz) machine, you may be able to watch all
    kinds of video, anyway. You will waste lots of CPU cycles, though...
