I've been trying to find an answer to this problem on and off for several months now finding lots of suggestions but none of which provides a solution in my case.
I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 (Classic mode) and have successfully installed Mplayer with SMPlayer as a front end. SMPlayer appears in the Applications Menu under Sound and Video and loads and plays MPlayer perfectly except there is no Skin Browser option which should show on the drop-down menu when you right-click on the screen.(See attached my- SMPlayer and should-be_menu). According to the manual MPlayer should load the default skin from usr/local/share/mplayer/skins or from home/.mplayer/skins with an option to choose a different one as previously mentioned. The skin folders are where they are supposed to be but still don't give the said option to change.(See attached screenshot of folder)
Has anyone had similar problems? If so, please advise.
