I discovered that Totem runs OK as long as I am logged on as Root, but will not run when I am logged on under my username.
Under my username I get an error about codec; I know they are installed because it runs under root. The Codecs are under a link under /user/lib the link points to /user/lib/win32 and that is where the codecs files are.
Why can my system see them when I am Root but not as a user ?
Is there a Path or some configuration problem that needs corrected ?
I am using OpenSuse 10.3 on an older IBM THinkpad T21. Almost everything seems to work OK.

echo $PATH or env (will give lots more information) Note if you su to
root user, use the - as well to use roots environment.
