I'm trying to run a script that calls mplayer

mplayer -cache 2048 -bandwidth 9999999 -playlist ""$URL"" -vc null -vo null
-ao pcm:fast:waveheader:file="$NAME".wav

but I get a message saying error while loading shared libraries:
libgtk-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Synaptic says that libgtk1.2 has been has been obsoleted.

Is there anything I can do to make the script work?
