    Run it from a terminal and you can see any error messages there may be. The command is gmplayer

    It's an object file required by mplayer...

    And it's provided by libdca, as in my case here...
    Code:

    libdca-0.0.2-3.lvn7
    I obtained mplayer and, at the same time, many of its dependencies from the Livna repository with yum.

    I think you should consider completely uninstalling and then reinstalling mplayer by whatever method you originally used (source, yum+livna, yum+atrpms,etc.) hoping that it will also fix any missing dependency problems.
