In my attempt to get more sound out of my laptop I down loaded mixers from Gslapt and when I went to play a movie from my hard drive it will not open in any of my players.  It tells me that it is an unsupported codec. I removed the software but I still have the problem because I don't know what was downloaded with it  and what was on my computer to start.  Is there a way to see what files I down loaded in the past day so I can remove them. Or is there a better way to fix my problem.  All the movies played before.

Running 6.0 Classic KDE

I'm using standard but I imagine this will be the same in 'classic'.
Check out /var/log/pkgtools, either with any text editor, something like...
nano /var/log/pkgtools
or
mousepad /var/log/pkgtools

Go to the bottom of the list.  You should see the last packages installed by GSlapt.

Take a look at the packages that where upgraded when you made the changes that resulted in the problem. Try re-installing the earlier versions of these earlier packages.

Resetting everyting to the original programs worked.  I also got the codecs from mplayer website just to see if it would let me play some of the other vids I couldent play and it did.  Thanks for the help.
