443 should be created in each user's home directory who may use
444 <application>MPlayer</application>. For example:</para>

449
450 <para>There are several other ways to set up a font package. To use a
451 prerendered <application>MPlayer</application> font package, extract
452 and link one of the font tarballs using the following commands:</para>
453
454<screen role="root"><userinput>tar -xvf ../&mplayer-font;.tar.bz2 \
455 -C /usr/share/mplayer/font &amp;&amp;
456chown -v -R root:root /usr/share/mplayer/font &amp;&amp;
457cd /usr/share/mplayer/font &amp;&amp;
458ln -v -sf &mplayer-font;/font-arial-<replaceable>&lt;font size&gt;</replaceable>-iso-8859-1/* .</userinput></screen>
