To determine if it is a library problem use ldd to print shared library dependencies.
$ whereis mplayer
$ ldd /usr/local/bin/mplayer
libm.so.6 => /lib/i686/libm.so.6 (0x40028000)
libtermcap.so.2 => /lib/libtermcap.so.2 (0x4004c000)
libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x40050000)
libX11.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.so.6 (0x40054000)
libXext.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXext.so.6 (0x40134000)
libpthread.so.0 => /lib/i686/libpthread.so.0 (0x40142000)
libc.so.6 => /lib/i686/libc.so.6 (0x40157000)
/lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)
If one of these libraries is missing, you will get very misleading message:
bash: mplayer: command not found
