I posted this on the xfce4 list; however, they thought it might be a FreeBSD problem.


Right click on desktop
Click <Multimedia>
Click <mplayer>

This error message is displayed:

[ws] Shared Memory Extensions Error

I can start mplayer from a terminal window, but not directly on the xfce4 desktop, now will gmplayer work either. The same error message is displayed.

I am hoping someone has a useful suggestion.
