Re: [solved] mplayer2 fails to load libraries

I had just done a dist-upgrade in Sid and got the mplayer error.
Package libdvdnav4 was installed but not 
in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu!
So I copied the symlink and the lib from the deb...
And then did ln -s
and mplayer was back...

But my copy of it is in the /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu subdir.

I'll give this a try.

And I think it works, the *.* version plays something, but it wasn't the 
saved file. Clicking on the file in kmail gets me a requester or 3 
complaining about the skin, and eventually fails w/o playing the 
targeted file from a kmail click on the attachment.

But the saved file does play, so the "skin" error seems to be the thing
