I'm running default raspbian with the desktop environment. If I start omxplayer without allocating a console, I have no access to the control keys and can't get it to exit. Am I doing something wrong?
Is there a better video player that I can install in a conventional desktop environment? (i.e. not boot into a custom XBMC or similar UI)
Edit: to clarify, I tried starting omxplayer by selecting a video file on the desktop and using Open With... omxplayer %f.
