#550 closed defect (fixed)

When gmplayer fails to locate the skin, it yields an error that is inconsistent with the MPlayer website's front page

Description

This bug has been found to be present in both the 1.0pre8 release and the very
latest version from downloaded from subversion.

On the front page of mplayer [http://www.mplayerhq.hu which redirects to
http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/news.html, under the headline "MPlayer 1.0pre8:
"NeuTeam? strikes back"", under the "GUI" section] it says that "skins now reside
in a directory named 'skins', not 'Skin'". However, when gmplayer cannot locate
a skin, it yields the following error:

*
[skin] file ( /usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin/default/skin ) not found.
Skin not found (default)
*

Given that gmplayer ought to be looking in the "skins" directory and not the
"Skin" directory, it seems to me that the error message should instead say:

*
[skin] file ( /usr/local/share/mplayer/skins/default/skin ) not found.
Skin not found (default)
*

STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE BUG:
*TERMINAL*
svn checkout svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer/trunk mplayer
cd mplayer
./configure --enable-gui
make
make install
/usr/local/share/gmplayer
*END*
And then the above error is given.

This bug was found while using a fresh virtualized install of Slackware 10.2 on
VMware server. It seems like a relatively easy bug to fix and is at worst just
a misleading typo.

Thanks for mplayer, I use it everyday! You guys do a lot for the Linux community!
