To Build Gnome-MPlayer on Debian 5.0 Lenny

After compiling MPlayer on Debian 3.1 Sarge, I looked for a decent frontend to MPlayer. I found two frontends, SMplayer and Gnome-Mplayer. I chose to try Gnome-MPlayer because I am a GNOME person. However, Gnome-mplayer is not yet packaged for Debian 5.0 Lenny and previous releases. So I had to build Gnome-mplayer on my own. I downloaded the following packages in preparation for building Gnome-mplayer.

  • gcc
  • libasound2-dev
  • libcurl4-gnutls-dev
  • libdbus-glib-1-dev
  • libdiscid0-dev
  • libgpod-dev
  • libgtk2.0-dev
  • libmusicbrainz3-dev
  • libneon26-gnutls-dev
  • make

I downloaded Gnome-MPlayer source from the following location:

For Debian Lenny, download version 0.9.6. Versions higher than that requires latest GTK releases. I unpacked the Gnome-MPlayer source.

tar xzvf gnome-mplayer-0.9.6.tar.gz
cd gnome-mplayer-0.9.6

Then, I configured gnome-mplayer compilation:

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --with-libgpod --with-libmusicbrainz3

Then, I initiated compilation:

make
make install

The following files are installed on the system after compiling Gnome-mplayer:
