Bug Description

I open a new bug as suggested on #5508. (Please add mplayer-skins for source package, I couldn't choose it for this report.)

With mplayer 2:0.99+1.0pre7try2+cvs20051205-0ubuntu4, installing mencoder is OK. (Thanks for really quick fixing.)

But, still getting "[skin] file ( /usr/share/mplayer/Skin/default/skin ) not found." with gmplayer.

First of all, there is no files in that directory. And second, to test fix, I have removed the link I made, then put "skin = /usr/share/mplayer/Skin/clearplayer" after "# skin = Abyss" line into /etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf, but same error. So, I guess this version of mplayer only looks a skin in default directory. If so, I'd like to suggest that copy all files in cleartype directory to default/skin directory for initial zero conf.

Version of mplayer-skins tested is 2-2.

Small mistake, the version of mplayer above should be corrected with 2:0.99+1.0pre7try2+cvs20051205-0ubuntu5 .

Even copying the cleartype to ~/.mplayer/Skin/, then configure skin = cleartype isn't working too.

Oops, not cleartype it's clearplayer.

Fixed with mplayer-skins 2-3.

After installation of mplayer-skins 2-3, I did remove /usr/share/mplayer/Skin because timestamp on my default directroty is different than clearplayer and mini (probably due to my test), then reinstalled the package. Fine now, Thanks.
