I installed mplayer and when I click on the icon i get
I installed mplayer numerous ways. From a .bz2, .deb and compiling it
from instructions which seems to work bur I get the same error.
Lest something think I did not do homework, I goggled forever and found
a few examples for people who had the same problem and tried the
solutions to no avail. I found out about something called symlink which
I googled to death as well. I tried creating a subfont.ttf in the
~/.mplayer directory, I even copied and pasted some fonts both in
~/mplayer and in ~/.mplayer/subfont.ttf, I got the fonts from
/usr/share/fonts. I tried to do a symlink, I reasearched symlink and
came up with the ln command and tried to link the ./mplayer/subfont.ttf
with a font in /usr/share/fonts.
Obviously I dont know what the hell I am doing. Noob syndrom, sorry.
Could someone please help me by telling me in plain english what I need
to do or direct me to someplace that gives the solution in non-uber geek
