Problem with SMPlayer in Lubuntu

After installing Lubuntu, SMPlayer and Gnome Player would not work because mplayer is not installed yet, but a different application (a fork, mplayer2, with other dependencies).

So, before installing SMPlayer, it is better to get mplayer proper.

sudo apt-get purge mplayer2
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get install mplayer gecko-mediaplayer gnome-mplayer

Then install SMPlayer in Synaptic and test it. If sound doesn't work  look in Preferences/General/Audio and switch audio between pulse/alsa.
