Configuring MPlayerConfig files/etc/mplayer/*, ~/.mplayer/*Configuration InformationIf you wish to utilize a FreeType font,
you need to link a TTF
file to your ~/.mplayer directory. For example:
ln -sf /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/luxisri.ttf ~/.mplayer/subfont.ttf
ln -sf ../font-arial-[font size]-iso-8859-1/* /usr/share/mplayer/font
You can chose your font size of 14, 18, 24 or 28.
Set up the GUI with the following commands executed
from your source directory:cat > /etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf << "EOF"
gui = yes
skin = default
EOFThe first line, gui = yes, will make
MPlayer start in GUI mode automatically. If you want to decide whether to start
in GUI mode or not, leave that line out and start
or as gmplayer (e.g.
when starting from a Window Manager menu or command prompt). Note that
the main configuration file is called config if it
is placed in the ~/.mplayer directory.
