I have emerged gnome-mplayer 1.0.4 and have found changes to Preferences do not persist between sessions of the program. I have extensively googled this problem and have come to no solution. I would be appreciative if someone could give me help troubleshooting...

Sorry I could not give more information but I do not know what would help...

Start gnome-mplayer from a terminal, and copy the output mplayer produces in the terminal. Do this both before and after changing your prefs.

Thank you for replying so soon.

Unfortunately gnome-mplayer produced no output on both occasions.

Nope...
Code:
$ sudo emerge -av dconf

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild   R    ] gnome-base/dconf-0.5.1-r2  USE="-doc (-introspection) -vala" 0 kB

Total: 1 package (1 reinstall), Size of downloads: 0 kB

Would you like to merge these packages? [Yes/No] n

Quitting.


However the problem seems to have mysteriously fixed itself over the last week (in which I haven't had a chance to reply). As a result I will wait for now, and if the problem stays away I will mark the thread as solved in a few days. Thanks for the help all the same.

...and when was dconf emerged ? It didn't need to be during (or even after) gnome-mplayer emerge.
